    During routine fishing operations with the hooks and line by catamarans off the Kovalam coast, fishermen lookout for floating debris, particularly drifting woods and planks from river drainages during floods, as these floating objects are associated with large fish shoals of carangids, rainbow runners, tunas and breams. These objects normally have algal growth, Lepas colonies, barnacles, sponges, ascidian colonies, sea spiders, amphipods and several other associated fauna.
