Author(s): Bernard C Gomez, Teresita P Senados and Gregorio Z Gamboa Jr

Abstract: This study was conducted within 1-year period to determine relative abundance, catch per unit effort and fecundity of Flying fish in West Coast of Surigao del Norte, Philippines. A total of 2,537 Flying fish individuals belonged to three (3) genera and 11 species were recorded. The yellow-wing Flying fish, C. poecilopterus was the most dominant and abundant species with 37.80% of the total sample gathered. November obtained the highest catch landings, 8,041.67 kg and CPUE, 15.11 kg∙boat-1day-1. The estimated total catch landing for the whole duration of the study has reached to 46,604.51 kg with a mean CPUE of 12.20 kg∙boat-1 day-1. A significant linear relationship was observed between absolute fecundity and total length, body weight, ovary length and ovary weight of C. poecilopterus. Absolute fecundity varies from 7668±713 to 11218±769 with a mean of 9402±1827 eggs. The ova diameter is significantly increasing from 589.4±161.5μm in September with a maximum diameter of 1416.7±54.7μm in March and decrease slightly from the month of April to May. Similarly, the mean values of gonadosomatic index were recorded from September (5.84±0.64) to May (11.08±2.58) and also showed highest in March (13.18±2.01).
