Abstract

At Tuticorin Fishing harbour, during peak fishing season (June-October 2009), more than 200 trawlers operate daily. During January-March 2009, the trawl catch was generally poor and the number of trawlers under operation fell by 25-30%. In January 2009, around 20 trawlers started operating for deepsea prawns and the total catch per day ranged between 800 and 2,500 kg.
