Abstract

In the study, selectivity of two different types of (short and long shanked but same gap sized) fishhooks used in Blotched Picarel (Spicara maena) in artisanal fishery were determined in Dardanelles. In the calculation of selectivity parameters of fishhooks Holt method was used. The trials were carried out in 3 different regions in the Dardanelles between 12.09.2006-01.16.2008. For hooks gap size of which are 6.10, 7.60 and 9.05 mm, for long shanked hook the optimum catching length was determined as 13.21, 16.46 and 19.60 cm, respectively and for short shanked hook the optimum catching length was determined as 12.69, 15.81 and 18.83, respectively.
