The introduction of mechanized trawling operations, Maharashtra, with a coast line of 720 km, occupies an important placp in the export oriented prawn fishing industry of India. The state stands second in penaeid prawn landings with an annual average (1971-80) of 27,000 tonnes, contributing to 25% of the all-India catch of penaeids. Sassoon Dock and New Ferry Wharf are two important bases in Greater Bombay for commercial trawling. The present account attempts to give a picture of the trawl fishery with special reference to prawns and by-catches during 1979-82.
