Catch per unit effort of coastal prawn trammel net fishery in Izmir Bay, Aegean Sea
Catch per unit effort (CPUE) data from the coastal trammel prawn net fishery was estimated from fishery-dependent surveys in Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea) during the 2004-2005 fishing season. Catches were sampled from 18 boats for a total of 170 landings, 60 landings from April to July (first period) and 110 landings from August to November (second period). The mean CPUEs were 2.56 ± 0.39 kg. 10 net unit-1 in the first period and 2.29 ± 0.20 kg. 10 net unit-1 in the second period, and not significantly different between periods (P>0.05).
