The plank built boats of 6-8 m OAL with 10-15 H.P. engine operated 30 to 60 such pieces, dugout canoes of 5-6 m with 5-10 H.P. used 20-35 pieces and 4-6 m non-mechanised dugout canoes operated 10 to 15 pieces of gill nets. H. ilisha shoal was caught from 2 to 5 meter depth and within the range of 1 to 2 km off Versova. The unusual landing of H.ilisha continued for five days.
