The attraction activity of the natural baits for sea eels(Astroconger myriaster) was surveyed by using fishing traps in the 3 different fishing ground of southern coastal waters of Korea. Twenty four different baits were experimented and weight for each bait was 50g, the optimal minimum weight owing to our preliminary test. Among the above 24 baits, anchovy(Engraulis japonica), sardine(Sardinops melanosticta), or marine worms(Neanthes japonica)were most effective. In case of sardine bait, the body showed higher attraction activity than the head or viscera and the builded juice of anchovy or sardine showed higher attraction activity than spoiled one.
