Abstract

The marine fisheries sector of India has grown from the subsistance level to that of an industry mainly through the introduction of mechanised crafts and the subsequent developments in the craft technologies. Though the overall landings have increased, a low catch per unit effort and the increased cost of fishing have left some units to run on loss. Thus it is imperative to study the economic performance of various fishing units to help in judicial allocation of resources and to suggest suitable policy prescriptions. Hence, the economics of major fishing units was studied in Ramanathapurarn District of Tamil Nadu.
