Vivekanandan, E and Balakumar, S K and Soundararajan, R (1986) Some recent observations on small-scale fishery In the vicinity of Madras. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 70 . pp. 18-19.



Madras zone is one of the important fishing centres on the east coast of India. To understand the fish landings from different gears in Madras, three landing centres, viz., Kasimedu, Triplicane and Nochikuppam were selected. Kasimedu is about 8 km north of Triplicane and Nochikuppam is about 2 km south of Triplicane. The major catch components from the demersal trawls of this area arc silver bellies, threadfin breams, sciaenids, lizardfish, prawns, squids and cuttlefish. These groups are landed in a meagre quantity by the traditional gears, thus maintaining compatability between mechanised and non-mechanised gears in the exploitation of fishery resources off Madras.
