The 'dol' net is' one of the most important gear used in strong tidal current along the coasts of Maharashtra and Gujarat. The Bombay duck, Harpodon nehereus (Ham) is the main constituent of the catch so much that the 'dol' net fishery has become synonymous with Bombay duck fishery. However, a detailed catch composition revealed that Bombay duck forms 68.6-77% of the total 'dol' net landings along the Saurashtra coast
