Abstract

Examination of the mechanised boat landings at Tuticorin during 1984-86 and 1985-86, of the sacred chank Xancus pyrum revealed that nearly 30.000 numbers of these sheila have been landed on an average in a year during these two years. The paper gives an analysis of the catches, size range of the chanks landed, areas fished and indicates the need for conservation policy to protect the natural beds from being disturbed.
