Small—scale shore seine fishery at Tuticorin 1987-'91

Sam Bennet, P and Arumugam, G (1993) Small—scale shore seine fishery at Tuticorin 1987-'91. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 123 . pp. 5-8.



Recent years have witnessed increased mechanisation of fishing methods all along the Indian coast. Particularly so along the Tuticorin coast in the Gulf of Mannar, where trawlers, motorised traditional crafts and out board engine fitted catamarans have eroded the use of traditional fishing methods. Important traditional fishing gears like rampani in Maharashtra and Karnataka, boat seines and shore seines in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have become obsolete due to inroads made by mechanisation in the fishing industry.
