Abstract

In spite of an increase in the fishing effort, the total catch was almost same. The important components of the fishery were Elasmobranchs (26% in the total catch), Clupeids (25.8%), Pomfrets (11.1%), Chirocentrus spp. (8.8%), seer fish (7.6%), catfish (5.6%), tuna (3.2%), ribbonfish (3%) and Carangids (%). However, increasing trend was observed in the abundance of Hilsa toll, Parastromateus niger, Chirocentrus dorab, Scomberomorus guttatus and Carangids. Generally, the fishery was good in the beginning and at the end of every fishing season, i.e., September-October and May-June, respectively.
