The behaviour of shrimp in response to the trap was much influenced by the type, size and the dimensions of entrance as well as physiological and ecological conditions. The entry and the escape behaviour of shrimp to the model trap were observed in accordance with netting materials, baits, type and slope of entrance, and gathering response were also investigated on the odour of bait extracts in the aquarium from June to August, 1983. Entering shrimp to the circular entrance was significantly more than to the triangular or the square; however, no differences were found in the entry behacior among netting materials i e., P. A, P. E. and cotton. According as the slope of entrance was increased its angle from 0$^{\circ}$ to 90$^{\circ}$, number of entering shrimp was decreased; however, number of escaping shrimp at 30$^{\circ}$or 60$^{\circ}$ with time was fewer than at 0$^{\circ}$ or 90$^{\circ}$. Gathering responses of shrimp on the odours were more sensitive to the flesh of mackerel or the shrimp than to the pickled anchovy, or the pettitioes, while no differences were found between another bait extracts, i e., the shrimp and the flesh of mackerel, the short-necked clam and the horse mackerel, the flesh and the viscera of mackerel.
