The present report embodies the result of the study carried out on the mechanised drift gillnet fishery off Cochin, the cost-benefits of the operation and the drift gillnet operations are confined to the surface and mid-depth zones at the fishing grounds, a brief review of the hydrographic features of the area during the period 1981 and 1982 is presented here.
