    This paper describes a repeat of an earlier study by the authors, concerning the mesh selection properties of trawl cod-ends of various mesh sizes on the cuttlefish Sepia pharaonic. A brief resume of the findings is as follows: the estimated 50% selection lengths with 95% confidence limits for single braided polyethylene cod-ends of 12.4 cm, 13.6 cm and 16.8 cm mesh sizes were 17.87+0.28 cm, 20.74+- 0.53 cm and 26.95+-1.07 cm; the 50% selection lengths and selection ranges were very similar to t hose obtained in the earlier study in respect to the 12.4 cm cod-end, but higher in respect to the 13.6 cm cod-end; the 16.8 cm cod-end had not been previously used; the previously held assumption that the 50% selection lengths and cod-end mesh sizes were proportionally related was seen as inappropriate, and hence also the estimation of selection factors; the more appropriate relationship was seen to be one of non-proportional linearity, and the regression equation considered most compatible wit h the observations as 50% selection length (cm)=2.03 mesh size(cm) -7.41; for a chosen value of the 50% selection length, this equation gives substantially different values for the choice of appropriate cod-end mesh size, than the selection factors estimated from the earlier study.
