    Abstract

    Bottom trawl surveys are widely used for monitoring demersal stocks when a simple index of abundance is required for scientific and related work. From unfished stocks (or stocks for which no or few data on the fishery are available), preferably the unexploited stocks, biomass and annual yield estimates may also be derived by undertaking bottom trawl surveys. The estimation of total biomass from the catch per unit of effort (or unit area) using a trawl survey, however, involves several crucial assumptions, leaving such estimates rather imprecise. But we can resort to this method when we require an immediate input to be generated and the methodology is less time consuming and easy to carry out.
