In this study, the characteristics of the purse seiners, their equipment and purse seines were investigated. The 8 of the all 71 vessels registered, made of wood, the 63 of them, made of sheet iron and their lengths changing between 12.5-49,9 m and their machine powers changing between 135-4300 hp. The majority of the vessels used anchovy net, bluefin tuna net and all-purpose nets. Vessels are well-equipped with the technical devices such as sonar, echo-sounder, radar, VHF wireless, magnetic compass, mapping set, ice-machine, cold-keeping room, generator and fishing pomp. Although the purse seiners are similar to each other in shapes, there are, however, some differences among them. Mess sizes of the nets employed in the study have been determined as 13-14 mm for the anchovy nets 24-40 mm for the all-purposed nets and 40-140 mm for the bluefin tuna nets, respectively.
