A note on the night fishing observations from a Kelong

Chellappa, Edward D (1959) A note on the night fishing observations from a Kelong. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 1 (1). pp. 93-94.



The possibilities of night fishing with lights along the coast of Mandapam with stationary dip nets have been under experimentation for some time, and the following is a brief account of an attempt made by the author in 1956. There exists at present a lucrative fishery for ' Choodai' Sardinella spp. in these regions (Sekharan, 1956) where lighted torches are used from boats and the fish which are attracted to the light are scooped into nets. Similarly, use of stationary nets (Chinese dip nets) and lights is common along the backwaters of Kerala.
