Information on the marine fishery resources is a pre-requisite for planning and development of harvest and post -harvest technology. In the country, there are about 2400 marine fishing villages and 1400 landing centres. The total marine fishermen population is about 2.12 million. Among them 23% are active fishermen. There are about 19,000 mechanised fishing craft of which 60% are trawlers, 21% gill-netters, 15% dol-netters and 2xpurse-seiners. The non-mechanised fishing craft in the country are about 0.14 million. Of them, the major constituents are catamarans (52%), plank built boats (28%) and dugout canoes (19%). There are about 26,000 trawl nets and 460 purse seines. In the non-mechanised category, there are about 30,000 boat seines and 66,000 fixed bag nets.
