Attempts at offshore fishing by trawlers since 1900 and the results obta inec are described. In the first half of this century some useful information on the trawling grounds was gathered but all efforts at commercial offshore fishing operations f ailed. Since about 1950 remarkable progress in offshore fishing operations has been made. The regiona l abundance of fish catches and the extent of trawling operations conducted at present from different bases are discussed. The nonavailability o f sufficient numbers of seaworthy fishing vessels has hampered intensive exploratory and commercial fishing operat ions in recent years
