Catch, fishing effort, catch composition and species composition of small pelagic landings were monitored at six sites in the Philippines between 1987 to 1988. This data volume presents total monthly catch and fishing effort plus catch composition for all gears monitored over this period. Since commercial fishing vessels of a single type may vary greatly in gross tonnage, percentage contribution to the catches by different tonnage classes are given separately.
A summary of the catch, fishing effort data and species composition collected by the DA/BFAR-ICLARM Small Pelagic Management Project.
