The range of gear operated varies from the tiny .catamarans to the modern shrimp trawlers with all the gadgets of navigation and fishing. With a number of fish landing centres dotted along the 130 km coastline, about 19,7351 of fish are harvested annually from the waters of this coast. Apart from this, about 130 large trawlers, 60 mini-trawlers and 100 'sana' boats fishing along the Orissa and West Bengal coasts land their catches at Visakhapatnam Fishing Harbour.
