Under the ASEAN-SEAFDEC program on the Deep Sea Fisheries Resources Exploration in the Southeast Asian Waters has been implemented since 2007. The main objectives are to support member countries for better understanding on the existing deep sea fisheries resources in their jurisdiction waters in addiction methodology of research works including deep sea samplings techniques. Literature reviews on the deep sea fisheries resources in the Southeast Asian waters is one of the preliminary works in order to check the species composition of all fauna existing in the deep sea areas in the EEZ of member countries. Based on the existing information such as the deep sea fisheries resources survey in the west coast of the Sumatra and Java, Indonesia by RCCF in cooperation with OFCF/Japan and the fisheries resources on the continental slopes in the Andaman sea by DOF/Thailand in the past of 30 years ago, many fauna species particularly fishes and shrimps found from the surveys were listed in this paper. Updated data will be made every year to include various deep sea areas and new species which will be found from the survey by SEAFDEC research vessels.
