    The specific aim or output of the work package on fisheries management is to “define a new fisheries management system” for Tamil Nadu & Puducherry (TN & PC) since it is an essential tool for achieving the long term development goal of the project. The approach was a mixture of (i) expert consultations with fishery biologists, fishery statisticians, academics, fisheries NGOs, fisheries officials, (ii) review of fisheries management with available current information, (iii) a detailed analysis of catch data species wise, district wise and sector wise (mechanised, motorised and non-motorised) and (iv) an exercise to identify potential Fisheries Management Units (FMUs) and to develop a detailed characterization of them. Based on the above, fisheries management options for TN & PC have been worked out and presented in a state level multi-stakeholder workshop and subsequently refined. This report is the outcome of this process.
