Venkataramana, P and Burayya, N and Dhanaraju, K (1992) Introduction of fibre glass "Teppa" as a possible substitute for catamaran for fishing in the inshore waters of Andhra Pradesh. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 117 . p. 14.
Catamaran is made of 2-3 light weight wooden logs tied together and is generally operated manually by one person for fishing in the near shore waters using cast net, gill net, and occasionally hooks and line. Recently Teppa made of fiberglass having facility to use outboard motor has been introduced to over come the difficulties of catamarans. Monitoring of the operation of these crafts is being continued to understand the efficiency of this gear over the wooden catamaran.
