    Mud banks are unique, clearly demarked naturally occurring calm areas which occur mainly in the inshore waters along the Kerala coast during the southwest monsoon period. Formation of mud banks can be either just before the onset of SW monsoon or during the monsoon. Mud banks are popularly known as “Chakara” or “Shanthakara “ (meaning calm area) and fishermen consider mud banks as ‘gift of God’ since these are safe fishing areas for launching and berthing the fishing crafts when the rest of coastal belt is surf ridden, with high swells and unsuitable for small scale fishing operations.
