Author(s): Hezron Gonzales Padios, Francis Nuestro Baleta and Jonathan Mallillin Bolaños

Abstract: The study determined and documented the influence of seasonal variation on the utilization and catch composition of fishing gears along the coastal area of Palanan, Isabela. Ocular inspection of fishing gears and personal interviews were conducted at the stations namely: Dicotcotan San Isidro, Sabang Maligaya, Culasi, and Dimolid. Results showed a diversity of fishing gears and fish species documented along the study area at two seasons. The most commonly used fishing gears during the onset of summer and rainy seasons are: troll line, bottom set gill net, troll with bait fish (lonoy), bottom hook and line (pasayad), multiple hook and line (ug-og), multiple hook troll line (saliw-siw tuna), and spear. On the other hand, the most documented fish species caught by fishing gears are skipjack tuna, frigate tuna, scads, indo pacific sail fish, sardines and flying fish in summer and surgeon fish, siganids, and snapper for the rainy season.
