Abstract

An overview of the bottom trawl fishery resources of the continental shelf of the northeast coast (lat. 15° N-21° N and long. 80^ E-83° El has been attempted based on data collected from the exploratory fishery surveys conducted by the Govt. of India fishing vessels during 1961-1985. The 'swapt-area' method has been employed to estimate the standing stock, and 60% of this has bean reckoned as the potential yield The catch rates in the shelf region ranged between 1 l<g/hr in square 17-33 CI and 377 kg/hr in squares that yielded 150kg/hr or more are distributed widely both in the inshore and offshore grounds- The potential yield estimates for the area explored varied between 083 t/km2 in 20° H-Sl" E and 3 37 t/km^ in 19° N-35° E
