Spatial: Temporal distribution of cephalopods off veraval coast, Gujarat

Panja Tehseen, AY Desai, RA Khileri and Joshi Arti

Gujarat is one of the most important maritime state of the nation contributing to the nation’s economy and Veraval is the major landing center of the state. The present study was conducted to understand promising fishing grounds of commercially important Cephalopods using GIS mapping method. The precise data in the form of geographical coordinates of fishing and allied information on the time of fishing, depth of the fishing area, catch details, etc. in a structured schedule were collected from the identified multiday trawlers operated along Veraval coast of Gujarat. Information was then mapped on GIS platform to get the promising fishing grounds and the spatio-temporal distribution of different groups of Cephalopods. The favorable fishing grounds for Cephalopods were located along the south off Gir-somnath district and off Daman coast at a depth range upto 30 m, which resulted in moderate to high CPUE in all the seasons.
