The article reports on an accidental adoption of light fishing for the Carangid, Selar crumenophthalmus at Trivandrum coast of Kerala. Fishes enticed by the light to the surface were caught by employing the type of hooks and line known locally as 'achil'. A modest estimate of these catches during the fortnight goes well beyond 2,000 tonnes.
