Bottom trawling conducted in 53 stations lat. 16°00'N -20°30'N; long. 81°30'E - 87°15'E revealed a production range of 3 - 15000 kg/haul with a mean of 581 kg/haul; the average catch in the region was 567.3 kg/hr. The dominant finfish in the surveyed area were Indian drift fish (36.4%), carangids (22.5%), catfishes (7.1%), bull's eye (6.9%), goat fishes (3.9%), nemipterids (3.3%) etc. The bathymetric zones above 200 m and 51-100 m were found to be highly productive with average catch rate of 1615 and 830 kg/hr respectively. In the surveyed region the highest production rate was at lat. 19°N (1384 kg/hr).
