The cost and earning of 7.5 and 12 m boats engaged in 'dol net' fishing are presented in this document. In the coastal sector of Maharashtra 178 mechanised boats are exclusively engaged in 'dol net' fishing of which 60 are small (7.5 - 9.0 m) 47 medium (9.3 -12.0 m) and 71 large (over 12 m). Two types of boats viz. 7.5 and 12 m long classified as small and medium respectively were selected and data on daily expenditure, catch, species composition and value realized were collected for three years continuously from 1983 - '84 to 1985 -'86. During 1983 - '86. The profit for small sized boats varied from Rs. 16,988/- in 1984-'85 to Rs. 23,411/- in 1985-'86; whereas in the case of medium sized boats there was a loss of Rs. 15,887/- in 1983 - '84. This type of boat realized a maximum profit of Rs. 32, 897/- but considering the expenditure involved, the small sized boats were found to yield better return than the medium ones.
