    Abstract

    Use of polythene carry bags is increasing tremendously in recent days especially in the coastal areas. After use, these are discarded and finally reach sea through river mouth. Studies conducted by CMFRI reveal that considerable quantities of plastic and other non-biodegradable objects are strewn around not only in beaches but also are recovered from fishing grounds while trawling (30-60.2 g/trawl). Knowing the ill effects of indiscriminate use and discards of polythene carry bags, the fishermen of Azhikode south unanimously have taken a decision to avoid the use of polythene carry bags for transportation of their share of fish for daily consumption after their work.
