Abstract:

The effectiveness of four different funnels such as Rectangular, Oval, heart-in and Circular shaped funnels were tested in a serial collapsible fish trap through fishing trials conducted in a coastal fishing ground of Mandapam of Tamil Nadu, India. A total of 24 fishing operations were carried out. The significant difference in the overall catch rate of the experimental trap with respect to funnels could be observed (P<0.05). Among four types of funnels tested with the constant rear end funnel perimeter of 700 mm, traps with Oval funnel caught high number of fishes (89 No’s/24 soaking days) than those fitted with Rectangular, Heart-in shaped and Circular type of funnels with 34 No’s/24 soaking days, 37 No’s/24 soaking days and 15 No’s/24 soaking days respectively. The study revealed that Oval shaped funnel was superior to the other shapes of funnels with 700 mm circumference.
