    Hand jigging by the artisanal fishermen for cuttle fish and squid is an important fishery along Gulf of Mannar in Tamil Nadu. These jigs are operated to fish from open shoals and not practiced along Coromaondel Coast. However, a seasonal fishery for cuttlefish using jigs around Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) in Sothikuppam in Cuddalore district started some four years ago, and became more widely prevalent in 2020.
