    Inventory of Kattumarams and Their Fishing Gear in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu - BOBP/WP/2 1980
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    During the second half of 1979 and the first quarter of 1980 a survey was carried out in some fishing villages of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, to obtain information on the types of kattumarams used on the East Coast of India, the kinds of fishing gear used with the kattumaram, the methods of operation, catches and costs. This working paper presents the results of the survey. The text and the photographs give a brief summary of kattumaram types and their economic importance. A comprehensiv e pictorial record of the kattumaram types is also available. For those requiring more detailed data on materiats, construction, fishing gear, operations and costs, a comprehensive record of the information obtained during the survey is to be found in the appendices. The survey was carried out by Mr. T. R. Menon, Chief Instructor (Craft and Gear), Central Institute of Fisheries, Nautical and Engineering Training (CIFNET), Cochin. He was deputed to the Bay of Bengal Programme during July-S eptember 1979 and in March 1980. The Bay of Bengal Programme and FAO express their gratitude to the Government of India, Ministry of Agriculture, and to the Director of CIFNET for making Mr. Menons services available to carry out the work.

    Report of Investigations to Improve the Kattumarams of India East Coast - BOBP/REP/17 1984
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report gives an account of the various efforts made by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) to improve the economic performance of fishing kattumarams within the constraints set by social and economic considerations outlined in the text. A wide spectrum of possibilities has been investigated and some of them have been tried out in physical trials. Many of the ideas put forward during the course of the work were however discarded as nonviable after consul tations with experts in different disciplines. During the work the best available experts have been engaged and consulted. They include, besides BOBP staff, counterparts and fishermen, Messrs P. Gurtner and J. Fyson of the FAO Fishery Industries Division; Mr. G. Eddie, fishery engineering consultant, UK; Mr. J. McKillop, sail manufacturer, UK; Mr. G. Gowing, surf-crossing expert, Australia; and Mr. O. Gulbrandsen, naval architect, Norway. But the responsibility for opinions, errors or misjudge ments in this report rests entirely with the BOBP. Parallel with the attempts to improve the kattumarams, extensive work was undertaken to develop motorized beachlanding craft. It is referred to in this report but the full account of these activities is given in other BOBP reports and working papers.

    Pen Culture Of Shrimp By Fisherfolk:The BOBP Experience In Killai,Tamil Nadu, India - BOBP/WP/49 1987
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes a shrimp pen culture pilot activity at KiIIai, Tamil Nadu, India under which selected fishermen operated small-sized shrimp pens, applying a technology package for KilIai conditions devised earlier during 21 months of technical trials by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The paper discusses the project’s socio-economic and technical approach, the problems faced during implementation, the results, and some recommendations for bett er profitability. A BOBP socio-economist and a senior administrative officer of the Tamil Nadu Directorate of Fisheries were responsible for the overall planning, implementation and monitoring. Technical inputs were provided by a BOBP aquaculture technologist. The field team at the project site consisted of two aquaculture technologists (biologists) of the TNDF, while a social worker engaged by BOBP liaised with fisherfolk and the technology team. This is the third paper on the KiIIai p roject. BOBP/WP/35 discussed the findings of 21 months of technical trials during 1982—84, while BOBP/WP/32 discussed a techno-economic end social feasibility study of shrimp pen culture, based on field surveys in the region conducted late 1983, after the technical trials.
