Remarks The study was undertaken to assess the importance of Sulaibikhat Bay as a nursery ground for juvenile fishes. Otter trawl (lasting 5 min at 0.5m/s) was done once a month between September 1986-August 1987, trawling was done beginning two hours before the time of high water, with the subtidal trawls taken first. Data provided is the collective catch from both intertidal and subtidal regions. Data probably referring to another species since G. filamentosus do not occur in the Middle East (Ref. 103159).
