The South China Sea Area in Southeast Asia is one of the most important areas for marine capture fisheries in the world, Marine capture fisheries in the region amounted to 8,291,000 MT in 1989, accounting for 9.67% of the world total. This paper describes the trends of marine capture fishery production in the region from 1976 to 1989, and, in Part 2, provides provision estimations of potential yield on the basis of the relationship between catch data and their percentage of the whole during those years. The catch data used was obtained from the Fishery Statistical Bulletins for the South China Sea Area. This paper also provides, in Part 3, summary notes on two topics; the regional fisheries situation from 1976 to 1989; and the catch trends and provisionally estimated potential yield in each country during those years.
