Abstract

Malwan is one of the important fishing centres on the west coast and it is situated at almost the northern limit up to which the exploitation of the economically important mackerel and oil-sardine fisheries of the west coast extends. In spite of its importance there is hardly any information on the fisheries of this place; and the present work was undertaken with a view to fill this gap in our knowledge of the conditions existing in the major fishing centres of the west coast. The following pages give the result of the fishery survey work carried on at Malwan for a period of six years from 1950 to 1957 (with a gap during 1953 and 1954 when no data were collected). In computing the data the "random sampling" method was used for estimating the total catch, unit-effort, etc.
