Abstract

Sardines are normally caught by gill nets and seine nets. Apart from these, several indigenous types of gears have been developed by fishermen to suit local conditions, which, though primitive and crude in appearance, are efficient in their own ways. 'Achil', a type of hand line, is one such gear developed and used to capture the lesser sardines and the rainbow sardines along the south-west coast of India between Varkkala and Cape Comorin
