Abstract

The Tuticorin Fisheries Harbour Is one of the old and important fishery ports of India located on the southern Tamil Nadu coast and on the western side of the Gulf of Mannar. Now owing to its commercial and economic importance from the marine fisheries point of view it is considered as one of the major fisheries harbours on the east coast of India. The harbour was constructed at a cost of Rs. 2.1 crore in 1968 in a total area of 17 acres, out of which the berthing area is 2.7 acres. This harbour has a berthing facility to accommodate 450 medium sized mechanised wooden trawlers. The total length of the jetty is 800 m and the depth in the area of berthing is 3m.
