Abstract

Bull's eye is one of the important constituents of the fishes available on the outer shelf in the EEZ of India. The fishery and oceanographic survey conducted by FORV Sagar Sampada during 1985-737 period in her cruises 1-30 showed that the bull's eye Priacanthus spp., occurred in 62 out of 182 stations where bottom trawl was operated. It formed 40% of the total catch. The catch rate varied from 0.3 to 4,905 kg. The resource is available from 20 - 262 m depths. The depth- wise catch rate was 184.5 kg in 0- 100 m, 249.4 kg in 1M200 m and 25.0 kg in depth more than 200 m. The present paper gives the distribution and abundance of this species in different latitudes and depth zones in the EEZ.
