Marine fishery of West bengal coast

Dan, S S (1985) Marine fishery of West bengal coast. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 63 . pp. 6-8.



West Bengal has a coastline of 120 km spread over the districts of Midnapur and 24 Parganas lying on either side of the mouth of river Hooghly. Trawling is not yet in vogue, although trawlers based at Vishakhapatnam regularly fish in this coast. There are only a few marine fishing villages along West Bengal coast. Bulk of the catch in the coast come through mechanized sector. But lack of berthing and mooring facilities stand in the way of expansion of fishing fleets. Fishing sector in west Bengal lacks the basic amenities like a good landing centre connected with road, cold storage, repairing centre etc.
