Effect of Jigs Color to Catching Efficiency in the Squid Fishing in Turkey
Ugur Altinagac

To investigate and compare squid jigs, six squid-jigging experiments were conducted from 1 July 2005 to 30 August 2005 with small scale fishermen. The aim of these experiments was to determine the effects of color of jigs on catch rates and catching efficiency of European squid taken by the hand jigging methods used by small scale fishermen in Turkey. Same types of two different colored red and green jigs were used in per gears in trials. A total of 102 squid were caught by the handline jigging during the study. After six fishing trials 12510.1 g squid were caught totally. 7890.3 g (n:63)of these value was belong to green type of jig and 4619.8 g (n:39) squid were caught by red jigging line. Average catch weight of squids per trial was 2085 g. One way ANOVA revealed that for both jig types no significant relationship (p>0.05) was found between the means of groups. Fishing with squid jigging line is proposed to small-scale fisheries due to high price of squid, low by-catch, no requirements of complex fishing gears and having low cost. And the green types of jigs are found more efficient.
