    Abstract

    The current level of fish harvest exhibits serious threat to the fish food security in the country and poses the need to explore, identify and utilize nonconventional fisheries resources. Kerala is one of the coastal states of India where the deep sea shrimp trawling operations were carried out on a large scale since a decade back. Presently the annual deep-sea shrimp landings showed an overall decreasing trend. The present study analyzed the impediments in deep sea shrimp fishery operations and revealed that the 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.
