Mechanisation of fishing boats means the installation of engines for propulsion and mechanical devices for handling of fishing gear. This as a rule results in bigger catches. Experience in recent years in India confirms this, as for instance, in Bombay where the installation of engines in numerous Satpati and Versova boats in 1953 resulted in approximately four times increased catches, and in Madras where the introduction of mechanised craft enabled an increase in the catches with various types of fishing gear in different localities.
