    Marine fisheries provide livelihood and nutritional security to the fishermen households in the coastal states of our country Ramanathapuram district is an important coastal district in Tamil Nadu in terms of marine fish landings as well as the raftgears employed. The analysis of economic performance of the fishing methods is very important for formulating any marine fisheries management measure. Hence, the study on economic performance of marine fishing methods in Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu was carried out. In the mechanized, motorized and non-mechanized craft-gear combinations, the economic performance of mechanized single day trawling for fish resources is better since it indicated the highest capital productivity, labour productivity, net operating income, gross value added and lesser input-output ratio. The economic performance of motorized single day fishing is not as good as other methods, since the net income per trip is less.
