The author studied to analyse the relationship between the body dimension of sea eel, Astroconger myriaster and the mesh size of fishing gears. The samples were caught by traps and pots during September, 1987 in the Southern Sea of Korea. The results obtained can be summarized as follows: 1. The relationship between total length L, body weight W and diameter D may be expressed as: W=3.58$\times$10 super(-4) L super(3.38) (r=0.99). D=0.07 L-0.59 (r=0.99). W=10.38 D super(2.76) (r=1.00). W=1/2$\times$D super(2).L. 2. The mesh size of traps and the hole diameter of post must be more than 29.2 mm and 18.6 mm, respectively.
