Problems facing the fishermen of the Beche-de-mer industry

Ambrose Fernando, S (1994) Problems facing the fishermen of the Beche-de-mer industry. CMFRI Bulletin, 46 . pp. 110-111.



The main problem facing the fishermen of the beche-de-mer industry is the shortage of raw material for processing. The Government of India banned in 1982 to export material less than 3" has caused furtherr hardship to fishermen since 67% of the material processed is below 3" size. To overcome the crisis the industry should diversify and extend to other areas and also take to processing of other more valuble species. Suitable extension programmes on proper handling and processing will be very helpful to the fishermen to increase their income, besides this will help to fetch more foreign exchange for the country.
