Marine fish trend at major mechanised centres

Jacob, T and Balan, K and Srinath, M (1983) Marine fish trend at major mechanised centres. Marine Fish Trend, 1 (7). pp. 1-8.



During the last two decades the marine fish landings in India by the mechanised sector have been steadily increasing. Presently, they form about 60% of the total landings. Almost half of the catches from mechanised boats are landed in some of the major landing centres, such as Veraval, Sassoon dock. Cochin Fisheries harbour, Sakthikulangara, Rameswaram, Pudumanaikuppam and Visakhapatnam. It is felt that timely monitoring of the landings at the major centres, where there are heavy concentration of mechanised boats, would be useful to Central and State government departments, industry and other agencies concerned with marine fisheries.
