Fishermen co-operatives

John, V (1958) Fishermen co-operatives. In: Fisheries of the west coast of India, 1 October 1958, Calicut.



Co-operation is more essential in the fishing industry than in any other, since the people engaged in this industry are largely poor and depznd for their finances on middlemen who very often exploit them. As a result of this, the workers actually engaged in the industry do not thrive, as much as might be expected. Further, the profits obtained from fishing are uncertain, since one good season is often followed by one or more bad seasons. The fishing season lasts for only about nine months in the year on the Kerala coast, there being no fishing carried on during the monsoon months.
