Abstract

Consequent upon the decommissioning of motor trawlers M.T. Ashok and M. V. Champa during the years 1970/71, exploratory surveys for ground fish fisheries were conducted. The logs maintained by the respective captains of the vessels as well as observations made by the scientists of the Research Centre either on board the vessels or at the time of unloading of the catches at the jetty were the chief sources for the data considered in the present account. Such surveys besides providing information on the spatial and seasonal distiibution of fish and fisheries in the regions surveyed further generate data useful for assessing resource potential. A detailed analysis of the data would reveal that the richest areas for the major categories were as follows: Sharks and Skates: 18-84/D5; Rays: 15- 81/B6 and 16-82/E6; Catfish: 17-83/D5; Miscellaneous- small: 18-84/D4; Miscellaneous-big: 16-81/ Dl and for all fish: 18-84/D4.
