Rajapackiam, S and Balakumar, S K and Mohan, S and Rajan, S (2005) Heavy landings of mullet Mugil cephalus by bag net at Chennai Fisheries Harbour. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 186. pp. 7-8.
Edavalai (bag net) is operated for pelagic fish shoals along the Coromandel coast. During the post-tsunami months (February- March) the edavalai was predominantly operated along the Chennai coast, which supported the livelihood of fisherman. The edavalai (mesh size: 15mm) used for catching anchovies and sardines is locally called 'arunthavalai' and the one (mesh size:25 mm) used for catching mackerels and mullets is called 'penthavalai'.
