    The average annual yield from the demersal fisheries of Vizhinjam amounts to 773 tomtes which forms about 29% of the total marine fish production of the place. The seasonality and the size composition of the fishery for silver bellies, balistids, pomfrets, prawns, cat fishes, scienids, elasmobranchs and perches are given. An analysis of the catch per unit of effort by the different gears shows that the general decline from 1965 to 1967 is probably due to reduction in the availability.
