    North Chennai is a major centre for mechanised fishing with approximately 1200 fishing units. Generally during the fishing ban period, the fishermen from these units either sit idle or enroll as labourers for fishing in permitted traditional fishing units. But during the mechanised fishing ban period in 2017, some of the fishers in North Chennai started mini trawl operations to tide over their lean period. The size of the trawl net was 15 m in length and cod end mesh size of 24 mm.
