Pai, M V and Pillai, P K Mahadevan (1973) Trawl fishery potential of the south-east coast of India. In: Proceedings of the symposium on living resources of the seas around India, 1973, Mandapam Camp.



Scanty information is available regarding trawl fishery resources of the waters of the South-East coast of India in the Gulf of Mannar. Until the establishment of the Offshore Fishing Station of the Government of India at Tuticorin in 1958, no organisation has conducted trawling alorg scientifc lines for charting the offshore fishing grounds, in order to delineate the distribution of commercially importent fish and prawns in space and time. Since 1959, exploratory trawling by medium-sized trawlers has been mainly conductedin the offshore waters around Tuticorin between latitude 8° 00'-9° 10' N and longitude 77°30'-79° 00'E. The results show that fairly rich fishing grounds exist in this area. The psrer indicates scope for further exploitation of the grounds so far charted.
