Mathew, Grace and Gopakumar, G and Lazarus, S and Chakraborty, S K and Kaladharan, P and Feroz Khan, M and Jayasankar, P and Venugopal, K M (1996) Perch resources of the shelf waters in the EEZ of India. In: Proceedings of the Second workshop on scientific results of FORV Sagar Sampada, 15-17 February 1994, Kochi.
The present paper deals with the distribution and abundance of perch resources in the Indian EEZ, based on trawling operations by FORV Sugar Sampada during cruises 1-90. Perches are available at depths 23-250 m; including the 27 stations along the Andaman Sea these were present in 151 stations. Trawling at depths within 100 m was more productive than beyond 100 m. The species composition also showed different pattern from within 100 m and beyond 100 m depth. The total yield of perches from the bottom trawling operations was 12 tonne with an average catch of 86.67 kg/hr. Though west coast registered a higher catch than the east coast, the catch rate was found to be better from the east coast. Good (Perch grounds were located between 18° to 20°N and 84° to 87° E at 60-70 m depth off the northeast coast.
