    A Study Of Techno-Economic And Social Feasibility
    1985
    Also available in:

    This report describes the findings and recommendation of a technoeconomic and social feasibility study of shrimp pen culture in the backwaters of Killai, Tamil Nadu. It is based on field surveys in the communities of the region in the latter half of 1983 and on three culture trials at Killai undertaken during an earlier 21-month technical programme conducted by BOBP and the Department of Fisheries, Government of Tamil Nadu. The 21-month progranime showed promise of technical viability on pen culture of shrimp. This study was therefore undertaken to focus on problems relating to social and economic feasibility, and thus help plan future state policy on introducing shrimp pen culture to fisherfolk. The study and the paper resulting from it are activities of the smallscale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The project is funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nat ions), and covers five countries bordering the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The main goals of the project are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and to boost supplies of fish from the small sector in member countries. The author of the paper would like to thank Dr. lan R. Smith (Deputy Director-General, ICLARM, Manila), Mr. I. Rajendran and Mr. V.C. Bose (D irectorate of Fisheries, Government of Tamil Nadu), and Dr. M. Karim (BOBP) for their cooperation in the planning and execution of this study.

    Further Trials Of Mechanised Trawling For Food Fish In Tamil Nadu - BOBP/WP/20 1982
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This document describes the aims, scope and results of experiments conducted with high-opening bottom trawls in Palk Bay and Gulf of Mannar, and off the Coromandel Coast, from July 1980 to May 1981 (An earlier paper, BOBP/WP/1O, described experiments conducted during March-July 1980). The experiments were carried out jointly by the FAO/SIDA Bay of Bengal Programme and the Directorate of Fisheries, Tamil Nadu. The BOBP provided the services of a fishing technologist, G. Pajot, and a consulta nt master fisherman, John Crockett. On behalf of the Government of Tamil Nadu, two officials - S. Pandurangan and P. V. Ramamoorthy - served as counterparts. The BOBP is a regional fisheries programme executed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and funded by the Swedish International Authority. It covers five countries bordering the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Its main aims are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and the supply of fish from the small sector in the five member countries.

    Fishing Trials with Beachlanding Craft at Thirumuilaivasal, Tamil Nadu, India 1989-1991-BOBP/WP/75 - 1992
    Also available in:

    Based on the experience gained in small-scale offshore fishing in Uppada, Andhra Pradesh, India (BOBP/WP/56), and the need to diversify and develop smallscale fisheries in the offshore areas off the Coromandel Coast of Tamil Nadu, India, a subproject for the commercial fishing of pelagic species was established in 1989 by the Fisheries Department of Tamil Nadu with technical and financial support from the Bay of Bengal Programme. It was executed in Thirumullaivasal, Thanjavur District, from Febr uary 1989 to January 1991 with one beach landing craft (BLC)of the IND-20 type. A second boat of the same type became available in July 1990. The purpose of the subproject was to demonstrate to fisherfolk and Fisheries Officers the technical and economic feasibility of small-scale offshore fishing by using the BLC and employing diversified fishing gear. It was hoped that the demonstration would lead to commercial exploitation of less exploited resources and produce new sources of earnings for the fisherfolk who own and operate traditional as well as other introduced motorized fishing craft. This paper records the trials over a two-year period and the conclusions drawn from them.
