Pair trawling at Sakthikulangara

Sijo Paul, (2011) Pair trawling at Sakthikulangara. Marine Fisheries Information Service (209). pp. 20-21.



In 2011, the medium sized fishing boats operating from Sakthikulangara opted for a different mode of fishing. During this period, usually they used to have a good catch of Parapenaeopsis stylifera and other prawns but the catch existed for a shorter period. This prompted these fishermen to opt for a different mode called pair-trawling (local term Nikathipani), in which two boats operate as a single unit with 10-12 crew members.
