Abstract

Level of non-renewa ble energy utilisation by different mechanised and motorised craftgear combinations engaged In inshore marine fishing along Kerala coast has been worked out. Fuel cost and its impact on the profitability and the fuel efficiency of different fishing units have been analysed in this paper. The study revealed that fuel efficiency is maximum for purse seiners among the mechanised fishing craft and boat seine with country craft fitted with 7 hp outboard engine among different motorised craft-gear combinations. Though the fuel expenditure per trip is maximum for purse seine, it is minimum to produce one kg of fish. Among motorised craft, the oil expenditure per trip is minimum for gill net operation but per kg of fish it is higher than that of boat seine operation.
