Dynamite fishing in the Chaliyar river, north Kerala

Lal Mohan, R S (1991) Dynamite fishing in the Chaliyar river, north Kerala. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 109 . pp. 12-14.



The dynamites (sticks) used for the fishing are those employed in the quarries for blasting the rocks. Dynamite fishing is carried out stealthly due to the economical gains. One of the serious hazards of the dynamite fishing is the physcial injury it may cause to the fishermen. The dynamite fishing is a socio-economic problem. The fishermen who resort to the fishing are well aware of the dangers involved. But they opt for the fishing due to the eocnomic gains and as it is one of the ways to make easy moneyThe possible solution to the problem is to persuade the fishermen to desist from using the dynamites for fishing and offering alternate employment.
