Abstract

Although the method adopted by the fishermen for launching of their catamarans H quite ingenious, it is most hazardous and full of perils. Out of sheer necessity to make a livelitood the fishermen have evolved this method when the stormy breakers of the monsoon season prevent them from launching their crafts into the sea. Accidents, sometimes fatal, often happen while launching or landing these fishing crafts. The Catamaran on launching, may hit against the concrete pillars of the pier and break into bits. The Fishermen sometimes sustain hits, cuts and fractures on jumping into the water, as waves dash Them against the concrete pillar or the catamaran itself. Several such accidents have been reported. In this connection it would be most useful if the state Government think in terms of implementing Insurance or some such schemes in order to helpthe fishermen and their family who get involved in Such calamities.
