Abstract:

Preliminary studies on conventional estuarine set bag net (CESBN) were carried out during 2016-17 to know the current catch composition. The set bag net is locally fabricated fixed net, normally operated in estuarine region during winter season. The fishing trials were carried out in day time with soaking period of six hours excluding time of setting and hauling. Total of twenty cruises were made for the entire period of study. Results revealed that locally rigged set bag net with 20mm bar mesh size at cod end landed average catch composition of 23.15 kg/haul. The catch consists of fishes such as Herphodon nepherus (14.62%), Otolithoides pama (5.78%), Polynemus paradiscus (2.121%), Ilisha megaloptera (1.93%), Trichurus spp (6.42%), Pampus argenteus (2.89%), Chirocentrus dorab (1.81%), Setipinna phasa (4.681%), Coilia spp (2.521%), Catfishes (3.09%) and shellfishes such as Metapanaeus spp (4.730%), Peneaus spp (2.350%), Macrobrachum spp (1.24%) and Metapenaeus monoceros (6.68%).
