Vizhinjam, an important fish landing centre in the fishery zone extending from Kollangode in the south to Valiaveli in the north spreading over a distance of 50 km on the southwest coast of India. Data collected over a period of five years, from 1981 to 1985, from the landing centre at Vizhinjam have been analysed to draw up a general fishery calendar suitable for this centre elucidating the cyclic changes in the abundance and dominance of the commercially important species/ groups of fish within a year. The data show that the annual marine fish landings (fin fish alone) at Vizhinjam ranged from 5,207.01 t in 1981 to 9,726.2 t in 1985 with the annual average landings at 6,374.41 t.
