Abstract

The deep sea multiday tuna drift gillnetters face many risks while they engage in fishing. The cutting and stealing of nets by fishermen of other boats or damage of the nets by the ships is common. As the total length of a net when set is around 5 to 6 nautical miles (nmi) and the fishing is carried out during night, quite often the fishermen come to know about the loss only at the time of hauling the net. Another serious issue is the possibility of collision with an approaching ship as sometimes the fishing ground can be on the same track of a ship and fishermen notice it only when the ship is too near to them. Installation of fishing net tracking buoy can effectively avoid these risks and enable a hassle free fishing trip.
