The types of fishing craft and gear commonly used in the fishery have been evolved to suit the local requirement depending upon the physical characteristics of the coastline, surf conditions as well as habits of fish. Descriptive accounts of the types of these craft and gear, used both on the west and east coasts of India, are given by Hornell (1910a and 1938), Chopra (1951), Anon. (1941 and 1943), and Zeiner and Rasmussen (1958). Later Jones and Rosa (1965 and 1967) have listed the important types of fishing craft and gear commonly employed in the mackerel fishery. Similarly Rao (1969) has shown, among other things, the most common types of fishing boats and nets used in the Indian waters for this fishery.
