Abstract

Modernisation of fishing operations in the inshore areas around India has progressed appreciably during the last decade and increasing attention is now being given towards the exploitation of the resources in the near and distant waters. Careful planning of larger fishing vessels, which involves considerable investment is an important factor in this development programme. This paper considers the available data on the known . and potential resources and outlines a method of analysis by which the suitable vessels for the optimum exploitation of the resources can be determined. The analysis covers the relations between vessel parameters like size range, speed, hold capacity, operational cost, etc., as against catch returns.
