Excerpt from Distribution, Relative Abundance, and Movement of Skipjack Tuna, Katsuwonus Pelamis, in the Pacific Ocean Based on Japanese Tuna Longline Catches, 1964-67 Certain characteristics of the longline gear affect the catch and catch data. And these should be cited so that conclusions drawn from the data are viewed in the proper perspective. First, the catches of skipjack tuna by this gear are extremely small. In the years 1962-66, for example, the catch of skipjack tuna in the Japanese commercial tuna longline fishery averaged metric tons per year, as compared with an average of metric tons caught by the pole-and-line fishery. The smallness of the catch reflects the inefficiency of the gear for taking this species, but, because of the wide areal coverage by this gear, these data should be useful for determining areas of high or low relative abundance.
