Abstract:
The biomass  and  species  composition of  thelandings  from  7  coastal  small  scale  fisheries vessels were  compared  over  a  5  month  period  in  SW  Samos, eastern  Aegean  Sea.  The quantitative  composition  of  the landings  was  assessed  for  the  different metiers:  trammel  net, small gillnet,  long  line,  boat  seine  and  a  locally  practiced metier,  “kalami”. The  total  landing weight of this fleet between June and October was 14.3 tons, dominated by the catches of the small gill net métier (52.7%).
