Abstract

Trash fish landing at Mangalore Fisheries Harbour is mainly used for fish meal. The earlier practice was to take the trash to sandy areas near the sea and sun dry them. In the case of the catch brought by single day trawlers, the usual practice was to separate commercial groups from the entire catch and to sun dry the rest. During the year 2008, the average price of trash fish was Rs. 4/kg. Low value by-catch of multi-day operating vessels, pertaining to the last two days are brought to the shore for sun drying.
