Preliminary Report Demersal Resources on the Un-trawlable Grounds in the South China Sea and Andaman Sea
MetadataShow full item record
The demersal fishery resources surveys on the continental slopes particularly in the un-trawlable grounds of South China Sea and the Andaman Sea have been conducting by SEAFDEC using the specific fishing gear such as bottom vertical longline or/and trap. The aim is to investigate the potential demersal resources existing on the continental slopes in the Southeast Asia waters through the actual fishing trails and data/information collection onboard the research vessels. This project is a part of ASEAN-SEAFDEC program on the "Sustainable Utilization of Potential Fisheries Resources and Reduction of Post-harvest Losses". A series of field surveys were carried out with collaboration to SEAFDEC member countries.
