Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry contiguous to it, since share a commonness both in fishing tradition and in fishery resources, are treated together in this report, though Tamil Nadu by itself is easily comparable with any other maritime state in the vastness of inshore resource as well as in the involvement of fishing activities. The states are endowed with rich resource potential capable of being developed. The combined coastline is about a thousand kilometers studded with many a fishlanding centres of intense activities. Tamil Nadu, descending to the tip of the peninsular India, has the unique advantage of facing three major seas, the Arabian sea, Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal, and having the benefit at its disposal of both the monsoons, the South West and the North East.
