Abstract

It was during 1977 that large -scale operation of purse – seines started in India mostly along the Karnataka coast. No doubt this has substantially increased the marine fish landings , especially mackerel and sardines . But it has affected the traditional Rampani fishing which also exploits the same fishery resources . The paper makes an impact analysis of this development.
