Abstract

Among the different gears, drift and set gill nets and bag nets of varied mesh sizes are widely used along the east and west coasts while ring seines, purse seines and mechanised gill nets are confined to the southwest coast. Trawlers upto 11 m OAL are operated along the entire coast, while the second-generation large trawlers (13-17m) are employed from selected harbours along both the coasts. The share of mechanised sector to the total landings increased from 20% in 1969 to 67% during the year 2000. The landings from mechanised sector increased from about 1.8 lakh tonnes in 1969 to 17.9 lakh tonnes in the year 2000.
