    Abstract

    A survey was conducted at Chettuva, Thrissur District, Kerala to observe the mud bank fishery in July 2016. Very low fish catch was recorded at Chettuva Fisheries harbour prior to the formation of mud bank. A sudden increase in catch after onset of mud bank formation prompted many fishers from nearby fishing villages such as Kalamukku (Ernakulam district); Chettuva, Azhikode and Thalikulam (Thrissur district) and Ponnani (Malappuram district) to temporarily migrate to these fishing grounds during the period reported.Ring seiners, motorised mini trawlers and non-motorised crafts were operated. Motorised wooden mini trawlers with either double or single outboard motor, with each boat having 9.9 hp power were also employed for fishing. Since mini trawl was operated with two attached crafts, it was locally known as double net.
