Fishing trials were carried out on a commercial prawn trawler between 18 and 23 September 2006. Data were collected with a conventional trawl net, designed specifically for prawns. During six valid trawl hauls, 32 species were caught in total and of the 17 species regarded as commercially valuable, individuals of all sizes of 12 species and those of the relatively larger sizes of 5 species were retained. The other 15 species were discarded as these are regarded as non-commercial due to a lack of market demand. The discard ratio was calculated as 2 . 37 : 1 for this fishery. The length-frequency distribution of the targeted penaeid prawn, Marsupenaeus japonicus , shows one peak at about 33 mm http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Crustaceana Brill
