Fisher folk in the coastal belts were identified from selected villages viz., Ayiralllthe/lgll (23), Dnlnvnpllral1l (24) and Azheeknl (23)and the technology of edible oyster culture was demonstrated. Data were collected from the women with the help of a structured interview schedule. Dahl were collected for a period of three months during the year 2002- 03.
