    Abstract

    Deep-sea shrimp fishery operations in Kerala were initiated since 1999 with high landings which subsequently dropped considerably. The present study assesses the different problems faced by trawloperators in deep-sea shrimp fishing operations. High operational cost, high risk and efforts, lack of skilled and trained manpower, low market price realisation, abundance of discards, poor quality of shrimps, low level of harvesting technology perceived a major hurdles in deep-sea shrimp fishery sector. The study suggests the need for improved governmental support in deep-sea operations for the sustenance of the sector in ensuring fish food security for the Kerala populace.
