Abstract

The socio-economic conditions of the marine fishermen and their attitude towards development schemes will serve as back ground information which is vital for implementing new technologies and policies. With this view in focus, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has been continuously monitoring the socio-economic conditions of the traditional fishermen and conducted several studies along the coastal belt to assess the existing socio-economic status and to evaluate the socio-economic impact of innovations on them. In this paper, the socio-economic parameters such as family size, age structure, educational and occupational pattern, customs, beliefs and the standard of living of the coastal fishermen household have been analysed. In the socio-economic impact evaluation studies, the changes that have been brought about by the mechanisation of fishing industry in terms of income and employment generation and investment on fishing equipments have been discussed. The recommendations to improve the socioeconomic conditions of the marine fishermen based on the studies have been proposed.
