Deep sea fishing

Chidambaram, K (1958) Deep sea fishing. In: Fisheries of the west coast of India, 1 October 1958, Calicut.



Fishing in the seas bordering India is at present largely confined to a coastal belt of about 7-10 miles in width. Though fishing is carried on to a small extent in distant parts of the sea, bulk of the marine fish landings are from inshore waters. The indigenous crafts and gear employed by Indian fishermen, though well suited for fishing in these areas, do not meet the needs of fishing in distant and deeper waters. It was, no doubt, realised that though production of fish could be increased to some extent by developing inland fishing, large proportion of increased landings should come only from the seas.
