Chennubhotla, V S Krishnamurthy and Rao, C V Seshagiri and Chittibabu, K and Rao, T Nageswara (1999) Crafts and gear used for marine fishing along the Andhra Pradesh coast. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 159. pp. 1-8.
Until the middle of nineteen sixties fishing for marine finfishes and shellfishes along the Andhra Pradesh coast used to be carried out employing indigenous non-mechanised crafts. Subsequently trawlers and later mechanised vessels operating gillnets came into use which resulted in the increased fish production. Use of outboard engine on indigenous crafts for reaching fishing grounds is a recent feature of near the coast fishing. The different kinds of non-mechanised and mechanised crafts and gear employed in the region are dealt with in this article.
