In this research, size selectivity for narrow-barred Spanish mackerel (Scomberomorus commerson) and other species such as Indo-Pacific king mackerel (Scomberomorus guttatus), Longtail tuna (Thunnus tonggol),Kawakawa (Euthynnus affinis), Talang queenfish (Scomberoides commersonnianus) and John's snapper (Lutjanus johnii) were investigated in mesh sizes of surface, mid-water and bottom drift nets in coastal waters of Bandar Abbas and in the western part of Hormozgan province (fishing ports of Gong and Bustaneh), as well as of catch composition from the fisheries. The data required for the relevant analysis was collected for the years 2012-2014. In order to determine the size selectivity of the investigated species, cumulative probability distributions of retention girth (operculum and maximum girth) at length was used. The results indicated that there is a linear relationship between length (fork length or total length) and transvers morphometric parameters in six positions of .....
