    For the past few years, purse seiners from Goa were reported to be operating in coastal waters of southern Maharashtra and therefore Rampani fishery was defunct. From 2010 onwards, strict implementation of Monsoon Fishing Ban from June to August was observed in Maharashtra. The revival of the Rampani fishery was attributed by the fishermen to this ban. However, the extension of mackerel even to the northern districts of Maharashtra and further towards Gujarat coast could also be due to the high cyclic abundance of the species, as observed in the past.
