The enterprising small and medium shrimp trawler operators of Kerala ventured into deep sea fishing for the first time in November 1999 defying the longheld concept that deep sea prawn resources could be harvested only by means of large trawlers. This endeavour proved successful with the realisation of 25,647 t of deep sea prawns in the first fishing season lasting between November '99 and May 2000.
