Piracy on fishing boats

Dan, S S (1991) Piracy on fishing boats. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 108 . pp. 17-18.



Mechanised gill netters were introduced in Digha in Midnapore district of West Bengal in the seventies. The success of this venture was evident by the sudden increase of mechanized fishing fleet and its spread in Frazergunj and Namkhana in 24 Parganas district, in the southern portion of the famous Sundarban forest with its creeks and crevices, infested with crocodiles and the ferocious royal Bengal tigers. Fishermen on their way to the fishing ground and to the marketing place have to pass through these creeks with dense forests on both sides.
