Present status of the drift net fishery at Vellayil, Calicut

Sivadas, M (1994) Present status of the drift net fishery at Vellayil, Calicut. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 127 . pp. 1-4.



The drift net fishery at Calicut is commercially important in that the quality fishes like seerfish and tuna are almost fully landed by this gear. The introduction of outboard engines and the consequent fishing in more deeper waters have resulted in noticeable changes in the overall catch composition. In order to understand this; the recent status of the fishery is studied based on the data for the period 1988-'89 to 1991-'92 from Vellayil, Calicut.
