The fishery closed season - An obsession

Rao, G Sudhakara (2001) The fishery closed season - An obsession. Souvenir issued on the Occasion of the inauguration of Visakhapatnam R C of CMFRI 17 October 2001 . pp. 13-17.



A fishery closed season is imposed either in the breeding season to give a chance to each animal in the population to breed or in the recruitment season to allow a generation of larvae or juveniles to give enough time to grow to get optimum biomass from the population. Although the intention of the scientists in such a proposal was to augment the revival of the depleting population, it became handy for certain vested interests to exploit the situation in the name of conservation measures for their advantage. This has taken roots in northeast coast prawn fishery, in particular the large trawler fishery.
