    As in many tropical developing countries, the fisheries management in India is often intertwined between formal and informal agreements (traditional systems), which are not easily observed (Pidoet al., 1996). Most of these local agreements are semi-official, traditional, and sometimes even oral among different players involved in the activity. Even though all the fishing activities in Tamil Nadu are formally governed by the Tamil Nadu Marine Fisheries Regulation Act, 1983, the local agreements, rather than the Act and other government directives, seem to determine the management of the fisheries.
