Venkatesan, V (2010) Emergence of shore fish traps ‘pattivalai’ - their design and economics of operation along Mandapam coast. Marine Fisheries Information Service; Technical and Extension Series, 206. pp. 11-14.
Shore fish traps, locally known as ‘‘pattivalai’’ are being operated along the Palk Bay and the Gulf of Mannar coast from Thangachimadam to Pudumadam for a stretch of 35 km. In 1990, there were only a few numbers, which has since increased to more than 30 at present (Fig. 1). This new fishing operation was introduced by Srilankan refugees staying in Mandapam camp.
