The Cochin Fisheries Harbour is a major fish landing centre in Kerala. Cephalopod landings at this centre contribute about 11-23% of Kerala's annual cephalopod catch. They are landed as bycatch by shrimp trawlers which operate off Cochin upto 60 m depth. On an average, about 200 trawlers of 8-13m length range operate every day from Cochin base.
