Resumo


Cassino’s Beach is one of the most popular surf casting recreational fishing ground of southern Brazil and king-fish (Menticirrhus spp) is the preferential target. This paper describes the profile of the fishermen that use Cassino’s Beach. The dada analyzed came form 446 survey questionnaires collected monthly from 1999 to 2001 along of 22 km (from the Jetties of Rio Grande to the Altair ship). The king-fish were the target fish, representing 89.9% of the intention of casting and they were the most abundantly caught species (79.9%). It is estimated that during summer catches range from 1 to 2.5 ton of king-fish, and more than 50% of them are not fully grown and developed sexually. Our results suggest the need of more studies in order to improve ecological information about this special fishery and to preserve the environment.
