Following the study on volume of indicatrices in a real Finsler space, in this paper we are investigating some volume properties of the indicatrix considered in an arbitrary fixed point of a complex Finsler manifold. Since for each point of a complex Finsler space the indicatrix is an embedded CR-hypersurface of the punctured holomorphic tangent bundle, by means of its normal vector, the volume element of the indicatrix is determined. Thus, the volume function is pointed out and its variation is studied. Conditions under which the volume is constant are also determined and some classes of complex Finsler spaces with constant indicatrix volume are given. Moreover, the length of the complex indicatrix of Riemann surfaces is found to be constant. In addition, considering submersions from the complex indicatrix onto almost Hermitian surfaces, we obtain that the volume of the submersed manifold is constant.
