Abstract


In this study, we determined the technical characteristics and target species of some fishing gears, used in small scale fisheries in Bodrum Peninsula (Aegean Sea). The samplings were carried out in eight fishery cooperatives and fishing ports (Gündoğan, Göltürkbükü, Torba, Güvercinlik, Turgutreis, Akyarlar, Kıyıkışlacık ve Güllük) during 2012-2013. Technical plans of the fishing gears were drawn by MS-Visio programme with scale for gillnets, but no scales for longlines and handlines. A total of 9 type set nets of which 6 trammel nets and 3 gillnets, 4 type longlines and 4 type handlines were determined.

Keywords: Coastal fishery, fishing gears, target species, Bodrum Peninsula, Aegean Sea.
