Immanuel, Sheela and Srinath, Krishna (2000) Potential techno - economic role of women in fisheries. In: Marine Fisheries Research and Management. CMFRI; Kochi, Kochi, pp. 907-914.
In the field of fisheries women play an important.perhaps a dominant role in many shore based activities. Prawn peeling fish curing,drying,marketing,net making fishing in canals and clam shell collection are the major thrust areas in which women participate. In Tamilnadu coast they are involved very much in seaweed collection ,chank collection and other fishery related activities too. The little share of income thus earned is contributed to their family. Still.their status is considered far below the poverty line and are denied a lot. Considering the importance of fisherwomen and their role in fisheries, more emphasize need to be given for the betterment of the fisherwomen in India.
