Size selectivity of gill net for male snow crab, Chionoecetes opilio

자망에 대한 대게 수컷의 망목 선택성

  • Published : 2003.05.01


A series of fishing experiments was carried out in the waters off the east coast of Korea from January, 2002 to March, 2003, using gill nets of different mesh sizes (m = 180, 210, 240, 270, and 300 ㎜) to determine the size selectivity of gill net for male snow crab Chionoecetes opilio. The maximum carapace length (RL) of each male snow crab caught in the fishing experiment was measured. The master curve of mesh selectivity was estimated by applying the extended Kitahara's method. Two kinds of functional models, quadratic function and cubic function were used to express logarithmic selectivity curve and were fitted to the data using the method of least squares. The obtained results were summarized as follows; 1. The cubic function of asymmetry was chosen to determine the selectivity curve of gill net for male snow crab from the model deviance comparison. 2. The result of size selectivity showed that the catch number of small male crab was getting decreased according to the increase of mesh size. 3. The optimum value (RL/m) was 0.549 and the RL/m was estimated to be 0.281, 0.296, and 0.356 when the retention probability were 0.2, 0.25 and 0.5, respectively.
