Abstract

Mechanisation of fishing in India during the last few decades has resulted in the enhancement of catches And thereby better income for the fishermen. As a part of this general process of mechanisation, indigenous crafts are being motorised with outboard engines in different maritime states of India including Tamil Nadu, leading to promising results. In this context, a study relating to the extent of mechanisation of catamarans in the districts of Kanyakumari and Thirunelveli of Tamil Nadu and their economy was carried out and a brief account is given below.
