We report the experimental results of electron spin resonance in high magnetic fields up to about 53 T on the quasi-two-dimensional triangular lattice antiferromagnet NiGa2S4. The temperature dependence of the resonance field at 584.8 GHz shows a steep change below about 30 K, indicating a development of the short-range correlation. The frequency dependence of the resonance field at the lowest temperature for Hc is explained by one of the helical resonance modes. These experimental results suggest that the short-range order is well developed at low temperatures, and the resonance mode is described by a conventional spin wave theory.
