    Abstract

    In the wake of cyclone Ockhi that struck Kanyakumari district in Tamil Nadu and parts of Kerala on November 29th, 2017, disaster management has again caught the attention of fishermen and policymakers. Disaster Management in fisheries essentially deals with management of resources and information as far as a disastrous event is concerned and also how effectively and seamlessly one coordinates these resources. Data related to the perception of fishermen regarding current disaster management in place and the information services provided were collected from the stakeholders representing fishermen across the state of Kerala and was analysed using statistical tools such as percentage analysis and Garrett ranking for deriving conclusions out of the survey data.
