    The catch by this net is very much higher than any other gear operatedby non-mechanised crafts and is roughly estimated to be in the ratio of 2:1. The Moraval is a large net of 34 x 34 m2. It is considerably light in weight, of about 40 to 45 kg and hence it can be easily transported and operated quickly. Thereby facilitating more hauls a day. Only eight men are needed to operate this net from a catamaram.The dominating fish caught in Moravala include Mackerels, Sardines, Mullets, Silverbellies (Ponyfishes), penaid prawns
