This study aimed to determine the appropriate approach to fisheries was used to determine the emission fuels. Due to the regional and national level in the first survey carried out in this area led to the study work to be done in the field and was intended primarily for convenience. In this regard, the fuel consumption and data catches of 34 commercial fishing boats (27 trawls, 4 purse seiners and 3 artisanal purse seiners) which Iskenderun Bay during January-February 2016 month in which the production of fishery products obtained by fishing tried to obtain data and taken into consideration. As a result, the first information about fuel consumption and emissions and presented in relation to the amount of fishing for the first time it reached. Trawls for more realistic results can be achieved with this method, but research has concluded that the need for a more comprehensive study for purse seine vessels. In this study, it made a trawl vessels were fuel emission assessment unit has reached the conclusion that when the fuel emissions by purse seine fishing vessel to be much higher. In this study, the polluting emissions for all fishing was found under the international legal limit. © by PSP.
