Abstract in Portuguese: Two tentative trawling surveys were made by an American firm based at São Luís (Maranhão - Brazíl) in coastal waters of Maranhão, at the maximum depth of 50 fathoms (Lemos, 1956), with no success. After that another shrimp and fish survey along and off the coast of northeastern and northern Brazil was made by the Japanese research vessel "Tôkô-Maru" in 1956 - 1957 (Nakamura et al., 1957, 1958, 1963). In the fali of 1957 the U. S. exploratory fishing vessel "Oregon" made one cruise from Trinidad to the mouth of the Amazon River (Bullis, Jr. & Thompson, 1959), and another one in 1963, from the British Guiana to northeastern Brazil (Bullis, Jr., 1963). The authors had the opportunity of making survey aboard two commercial otter-trawlers based at Fortaleza (Ceará - Brazil), with the purpose of obtaining preliminary information on the shrimp resources of coastal and of f shore waters of Ceará, Piauí, Maranhão and Pará States, and Amapá Territory. This paper deals with the shrimp fishery as well as the record of species of fish, tunicates, echinoderms, mollusks, crustacea, coelenterates and sponges, in the area mentioned above, followed by some ecological notes. Also the data on length and weight of a species of pink shrimp, Penaeus aztecus Ives, are analyzed.
