Abstract

The distributions of eight teleosts and four Chondrichthyes trawled off the Cape south coast are given. The teleosts include Pagellus natalensis, Pomadasys olivaceum, Lithognathus mOrmyrus, Trachurus spp., Galelchthys sp., Atractoscion aequidens, Cheimerius nufar and Sphyraena africana. The Chondrichthyes are Squalidae, Myllobatis aqulla, Rhinobatos annulatus, Dasyatis pastinaous and Callorhlnchus capensis. Incidental observations on the biology of these species are also given, Extensive inshore marine nursery areas for the teleost species were identified. The importance of this with respect to inshore trawling is noted.
