    This study investigates the catch components of a commercially used demersal trawl cod end in Izmir Bay, and reveals some of the morphological characteristics of nine commercial fish species; red mullet (Mullus barbatus), hake (Merluccius merluccius), whiting (Merlangius merlangus euxinus), poor cod (Trisopterus minutus capelanus), tub gurnard (Trigla lucerna), common pandora (Pagellus erythrinus), axillary sea bream (Pagellus acarne), picarel (Spicara smaris) and annular sea bream (Diplodus annularis) in relation to mesh size and shapes. Furthermore selectivity of 40-mm polyethylene netting cod end for red mullet, hake, common pandora, axillary sea bream, picarel and annular sea bream is presented. The results are discussed in a way to understand the probable effects of fish body shape on mesh selectivity.
