Abstract

For planning developmental programmes in marine fisheries sector, the information such as the number of fishing villages, landing centres, fishermen population, active fishermen, fishing crafts and gears in the maritime states of India is a prerequisite. The National Commission on Agriculture emphasized in its recommendation that CMFRI should conduct quinquennial census in order to update the inventory of fishing resources available in the coastal villages with the help of State Governments. The enumeration work was conducted during May-July 1980 in the maritime states of West Bengal, Orissa, AndhraPradesh, TamilNadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Gujarat and the two Union Territories of Pondicherry and Goa. Over 2,000 marine fishing villages were visited and census data collected as per the village and household schedules through house-to-house canvassing
