Intra and interspecific association of large pelagic fishes inferred from catch data of surface longline

Abstract

This paper analyses the distribution of longline catches of swordfish, Xiphias gladius, and six species of pelagic elasmobranchs, during a fishing voyage in the tropical eastern Atlantic. Seven scales of sampling units, ranging from about 0.72 to 7.2 km were used. Observed frequencies of appearance of each species in the basic sampling unit, were compared… (More)
