Abstract

A study of the distributions of 675 species from the JETINDOFISH surveys of the southwest coast of Indonesia indicates that approximately two-thirds of the species occur in shallow waters and taper off abruptly in abundance below 100 - 120 m. This fish assemblage overlies an assemblage of species from older families which extend from a few hundred meters to various shallow depths. The latter assemblage is generally ubiquitous with respect to the 100 - 120 m depth range. It is unlikely that commercial fishing below 100 m would threaten the bulk of the fish stocks available to small-scale fishermen above this depth. However, the geographic, economic, social and political situation would make it extremely difficult to enforce depth-limited trawl fishing in Southeast Asia.
