The Fluctuation of Fishing Grounds of Hairtail, Trichiurus lepturus in the Cheju Strait by the Distribution of Feeding Biomass

제주해협에서의 이료생물 분포에 따른 갈치어장의 변동특성

Biomass distribution of zooplankton showed its lowest level in June in the Cheju Strait, and the highest one was noticed in November when the secondary productivity is considered high. The highest biomass of zooplankton appeared in the sea areas of Sta. 14 and 11 respectively with relation to oceanographic conditions and wet weight of biomass. The positions were the center part of the Cheju Strait, while the sea area of the South Sea of Korea and the northern coast of Cheju Island showed relatively low biomass distribution. The characteristic of the sea area where biomass was densely distributed was it was in patch shape. Meanwhile, biomass distribution was higher in the northern sea area of Cheju Island than In the coastal sea of the South Sea of Korea. It shows formation of hairtail fishing grounds is closely related to biomass distribution in the Cheju Strait. In addition, high biomass is displayed in the center part of the saddle shaped ocean, a boundary of the heterogeneous water mass as a feature of fall oceanographic condition. Good fishing grounds of a hairtail In the Cheju Strait were formed outside of the sea area that showed patch-shaped high biomass distribution.
