Alternative Methods for Calculating Catch Per Unit Effort (CPUE) for Fish Catch by Trawl Net in Central Arabian Sea of Srivardhan Fish Landing Centre at Raigad District through Utilization of PFZ Advisories, Maharashtra State
Bhaware BG*, Bangale SV
The potential fishing zone (PFZ) advisories received from Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Hyderabad during April, 2012 to, March, 2013 were validated along Srivardhan fish landing centres. The chlorophyll pigments is the food for fishes, on the basis of chlorophyll detected the Potential Fishing Zone is useful for fishermens community in fishing benefitted for trawl is operated for capture of the pelagic fish species. On the basis of chlorophyll the PFZ advisory are found to benefit fishermen with trawl net from within PFZ than outside PFZ. A benefit received through trawl net comparatively very less in outside PFZ. The PFZ data using satellite derived sea surface temperature and chlorophyll has become an important aspect for the fishermen. The data using different media, such as digital display boards, print media, fax and email etc. The study carried out from within PFZ and outside PFZ of Srivardhan major fish landing centres of Raigad district gave positive relationship between PFZ than traditional fishing. The Catch Per Unit Efforts (CPUE) was computed by dividing total fish catch (Kg) divided number of fishing hours.
