In order to investigate the performance for the mackerel purse seine of one boat purse seiner using in the sea area of Cheju Island, a model net is made of the scale of 1/400 of its full scale, and model test on the shape of net and the tension of purse line is carried out in the stagnant water channel of the circulating water tank. Designing and testing for the model net are based on the Tauti's law. The obtained results are as follows; 1. The sinking rate of net is maximized the value of 6.40 m/min from 5 to 10 minutes after shooting net, and the mean value is 6.13 m/min. 2. The enclosed area formed with the float line after pursing operation is 76-84% of the area which is formed immediately after the shooting operation. At that time, purse seine is pulled inward the circle of surrounding net about 26.5% of the diameter. 3. In operating, when longitudinal section area of the central part of the net is maximized, the split area of both the wing-ends is 31-32% of the former. 4. When the time for the completing of pursing is 20 minutes, the maximum tension of the purse line is about 10.2 tons.
