Abstract

During a research cruise on R.V. Varuna in January 1962, experimental trawling operations were conducted in the region between Calicut and Quilon on the continental shelf in deeper waters than those fished by the commercial trawlers. Echo sounders and the Asdic fish finder of the vessel were used to detect fish. On indications from these equipments regarding the presence of shoals of fish along the course of the vessel, midwater trawl was operated, in all, at eleven stations.
