Raman, K and Menon, M K (1963) A preliminary note on an experiment in paddy field prawn fishing. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 10 A (1). pp. 33-39.
The low lying single crop paddy fields, locally called "Pokkali nilam" tretching along the banks of backwaters and connected canals in Central Kerala are being made use of during the off season as prawn fishing grounds. The total extent of these fields may be well over 10,000 acres and their annual production may be estimated at about five ttousand metric tons. Fairly detailed accounts of this fishery which exists at present only in Kwala (particularly in the Taluks of Vaikom, Shertalai, Cochin, Kanayannur, Mukundapuram and Parur) have been published by Panikkar (1937), Menon (1954), Gopinath (1955) and Panikkar and Menon (1955).
