Distribution, Abundance and Biological Studies of Economically Important Fishes in the South China Sea, Area I: East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents species distributions, composition and biological parameters of major fish species caught from the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia during the one week surveys made in preand post-Northeast monsoon seasons. The fish species rankings changed over time and at different depth strata. The catch rates were decreased toward deeper water. An appearance of smaller fish group was greater during the post-Northeast than pre-Northeast monsoon season. Fish populations occurred at both seasons were represented from different spawning group. Their growths were isometric form in weight.
