The by-catch composition, catch rates of major species in by-catch and its seasonal variation was studied from 53 trawl hauls of a commercial shrimp trawler for the period from December 2013 to December 2014. From 330.036 kg of by-catch, 27,854 specimens were obtained belonging to 248 taxa (89 families) from which 216 were identified upto species level.
