Author(s): Francis Nuestro Baleta, Jaymark Guilalao Beltijar and Jonathan Mallillin Bolaños

Abstract: The study was conducted to document the design, fabrication and operation of fishing gears used along the coastal areas of Dinapigue, Palanan, Divilacan and Maconacon, Isabela, Philippines. There were thirty-three (33) different fishing gears identified and documented along the four studied stations. The fishing gears documented include; eighteen (18) lines, eight (8) nets, five (5) hand instruments, two (2) barriers and traps, one (1) aggregating device and one (1) accessory fishing device. Hook and line, multiple hooks and line and troll line are the most commonly used fishing gears by the fisher folks along the four study area. The most expensive fishing lines were kitang (set bottom long line) and the cheapest fishing gears were the bakulkol (hook and line) in terms of fabrication. Fisherfolks from the coastal towns of Dinapigue and Palanan uses payaw (fish aggregating device) to increase catch of tuna using multiple hooks and line.
