The ring seines operating at Neendakara on 14.05.08 landed a record catch of Sardinella sirm (Fig. 1). Two types of crafts were operated; thanguvallams with 90 HP inboard engine and fibre boats with 19.8 HP outboard engine. The depth of operation was 32 - 44 m north-west of Neendakara. The catch range per unit of fibre boat was 800 to 1000 kg and that of thanguvallam was 2600 - 3900 kg. Due to Ekadashi, thanguvallam and fibre boats did not operate on 15.05.2008.
