    Abstract

    A “fish drought” combined with a fall in prices of shrimp and sardines being caught this monsoon has left traditional fishermen in dire straits. Despite the monsoon setting in, oil sardine catch has dwindled sharply, according to Matsya Thozhilali Aikya Vedi convenor Charles George. P.G. Jayakumar of a fishermen’s cooperative said the prices of two major shrimp varieties in Kochi had come down considerably as compared to the previous years. Mr. George said the government should step in to ensure that traditional fishermen got better prices as the price of shrimp, usually caught during the rainy season, had come down. He added that the price had come down from ₹250 per kg to less than ₹200.
