In India the motorization of country crafts has, to a certain extent, helped the fishermen to increase their fish catch as a result of the increased mobility and the access to the fishing grounds. This report examines the efficiency of the technology based on the perception of fishermen of their present and future status in relation to their living conditions prior to motorization. The study was conducted in Vypeenkara during August-October, 1985. The fishermen in general felt that their status has improved as a result of motorization and were more optimistic about their future.
