There is considerable disparity in effort, catch and catch composition of prawns of day and night boats, an appraisal of the trawl fishery has been attempted here with special reference to day and night fishing, based on the data collected from Mangalore during the fishing season, 1982-83. The present studies also indicated that the average income per day of night fishing boats was considerably higher than that obtained by day units, thereby suggesting that night fishing was more profitable. The addition of more and more boats for night fishing in the recent years also point to the profitability of night operations in comparison with day operations.
