Abstract

Bassein Kolliwada is an important landing center in Maharashtra, where traditional dol net fishing is carried out for Bombay duck and silver pomfret which are economically the most important resources in the region. But, landings of Bombay duck and silver pomfrets have declined considerably during past few years. A dol net boat named ‘Dayadhan‘landed huge catch of ghol fish,Protonibea dicanthus at Bassein Kolliwada,from a depth of about 40 meters off Jaffrabad in Saurashtra region of Gujarat.It is perhaps the scarcity of fish that has led them to search for the new grounds for ghol,ribbonfish,koth(O.biauritus),and warm (C.talabanoides) in Gujarat waters.
