The article provides the economic statistics of the fishing trawlers operating in the Tuticorin fishing harbour. The trawlers operating at Tuticorin Fisheries Harbour were mostly purchased during the period from 1973 to 1985. Trawlers of 9.5 to 10 m were introduced at Tuticorin Fisheries Harbour. Most of the sample units in this category were purchased in 1984 and afterwards. Based on the economics of operations of different sizes of trawlers it seems that investment on bigger size boats of 9.5-10 m in the Tamil Nadu coast is advisable and introduction of bigger boats with longer operational range will further help to avoid the conflict between the mechanised and traditional fishermen.
