Abstract

Pomfrets which are of considerable commercial importance formed the main bulk constituting about 82% of the "A"class category of the trawler catches of the Government of West Bengal. These trawlers were engaged in exploratory fishing of the different fishing grounds of the Bay of Bengal and the log reports of these vessels provide information only regarding total catch, depth range and nature of bottom, as such, the present investigation has its own limitations. Since no information is available regarding the fishery and biology of' pomfrets the data analysed and presented here throw light on the resources of this fishery in the different fishing regions, its trend and also the biology of Pampus argenteus.
