    Abstract

    Demersal fishes are those fishes which live and feed on or near the bottom (the demersal zone) of seas . They occupy the sea floors, which usually consist of mud, sand, gravel or rocks. In coastal waters they are found on or near the continental shelf, and in deep waters they are found on or near the continental slope or along the continental rise. In India, demersal finfishes contribute about 26% to the total marine fish landings of the country, which is dominated by perches, croakers, catfishes, silverbellies, elasmobranchs, lizardfishes, flat fishes, pomfrets etc., in order of abundance. Most of the demersal finfishes in India are exploited by mechanised trawlers.
