    Abstract

    Analysis on the impact of motorization on traditional fishermen and deals with the total fish catch of various gears using motorized crafts as compared with total catch by non-motorized crafts using similar gears and covers the period from 1986 to 1992. One reason for decrease in fish catch after motorization of traditional crafts is the intensive fishing carried out by motorized units in the inshore areas traditionally fished by non-motorized fishing units. It is also possible that rsufficient recruitment is not taking place in the fishing grounds to give an encouraging trend in the motorized fishery.
