Abstract
In a region such as East Africa where little or no continental shelf exists between the shore and the deep oceanic water, the investigation of the pelagic fishes is of prime importance when selecting a potential fishery for exploitation. Preliminary work by the East African Marine Fisheries Research Organization (E.A.M.F.R.O.) (Williams, 1956. 1959, 1962) has demonstrated the potential of the commercially important comorbid fishes in the Equatorial western Indian Ocean. This is borne out by the existence of an active Japanese tuna Longline fishery throughout the area.
