Abstract

The number of big trawlers operating along the northeast coast increased from 55 in 1983-84 to 76 in 1985-86, increasing the prawn landings from 2353 t in 1983-84 to 3043 t in 1985-86. Catch per hour of trawling reached a peak in 1984-85 (20.1 kg) and then declined in 1985-86 (16.5 kg). The proportion of 'tigers' (8%), 'whites' (30%) and 'browns' (62%) was more or less stable during the three-year period.
