|VESSEL SURVEY OPERATIONS -JANUARY 2019|
|Srl. No.||Vessel||Survey Operation details|
|1||MFV YellowFin||The vessel carried out survey for oceanic tuna and allied resources by deploying tuna long line survey in the area between Lat.12-14°N/Long.72-73°E. She was out at sea for 11 days and conducted 7 days of actual fishing with total fishing effort of 2800 hooks in the depth range of 1098-2095 m. A total of 49 kgs of catch was recorded during the month. An aggregate hooking rate of 0.18% was recorded for all fishes.|
