Kerala has been the forerunner in the adoption of technological innovations in fishing operations. The latter part of the sixities and the early seventies witnessed spectacular spread in the mechanised trawling. Purse seineing was introduced in the latter part of the seventies though did not pick up as in the neighbouring state of Karnataka forsome reason or other. However, in the hindsight even this did not make such a conspicuous impact as has been made by the popular motorization of the indigenous craft in the early eighties and the consequent changes brought about in the structure of Kerala fisheries. The ring seine which was introduced in 1986 by its popularity became the main stay of the artisanal fisheries of Kerala in a very short time.
