Marine fishery sector in india has undergone a rapid change after the introduction of mechanisation. Powering the boats for conveyance/fishing has improved the mobility and the eflbciency of crafts. The introduction of mechanisation by ardc in this area in 1971-72 induced many other fishermen to shift from traditional to mechanised fishing which resulted in increased landings and created more employment opportunities in net making, ice plant and work shop operations, sorting, auctioning, transporting and fish trading. The absence of such economic activities in the neighbouring elathur village is a pointer to the importance of availability of credit facilities to invest in improved fishing techniques. A lower degree of credit facilities in any fishing village may be an indicator of its lower level fishing activities
