    In Tamil Nadu, Cuddalore fishing harbour is known for ringseine operation and in February 2018, the fishermen introduced multiday deep sea ringseine for oceanic tunas and the result was encouraging ( Sivadas et al., 2018. Mar. Fish. Infor. Ser. T & E Ser. No.235). Now the fishermen from neighbouring areas like Pazhayar, Kalpakkam etc also started practising this fishing. In 2019 since July, there were good landings by this gear. A brief account of the landings during July and August is given below to highlight their role in exploitation of both inshore and oceanic tunas. In a boat the catch varied from 5 t to 30 t. Initially the catch was comprised by yellowfin tuna and skipjack tuna.
