Abstract

The results of analyses of exploratory trawling survey data for areas north of latitude zone 1O' 4O'N (off Velanganni) up to '15' 40' (off Nizampatnam) for a nine year period from 1973 to 1981 are presented. In the entire region explored, a potential yield of 1.09 t km could be expected. Barring the latitude zone 10' 40', the lowest yield (0.7 t km-') was observed off Madras/Ennore zone (13°10'). With this zone as a reference point, the following conclusions could be drawn: a) increasing trends in both southern and northern zones and b) the northern zones were comparatively richer in yields.
