    This is one of a series of reports prepared during the course of the FAO/UNDP project identified on the title page. The conclusions and recommendations given in the report are those considered appropriate at the time of its preparation. They may be modified in the light of further knowledge gained at subsequent stages of the project.

    The concept of aerial surveys for estimating the fishery resources and various related parameters is new to a country like India, but the UNDP/FAO Pelagic Fishery Project, Cochin had conducted three such surveys in 1972, 1973 and 1974, mainly for estimating the pelagic fishery potential in the Project area extending from Tuticorin in the south to Ratnagiri in the north along the south-east and south-west coasts of India. The present survey, the fourth in the series, has been planned by Dr. G.P. Bazigos (FAO Consultant) and conducted under his leadership. The objective of this survey was primarily for obtaining a synoptic picture of the fishing effort distribution and localization of the inshore fishing industry in the Project area with a view to correlating it with the distribution of the resources located by the acoustic surveys of the Project. The survey was conducted using an 8-seater Twin-Beech aircraft chartered from M/s Goldensun Aviation, Bombay, from 27 to 30 September 1978 . This report includes accounts of the structure of the fisheries of the Project area such as information on non-mechanized and mechanized fishing crafts, gears, resources, fishing seasons and grounds and the presentation, analysis and critical analysis of the data collected during the survey.

    The description of the oceanographic conditions of the shelf waters off the southwest coast of India between Ratnagiri in the north and Tuticorin in the south for the period 1976-78 1s based on observations carried out along oceanographic sections located off Ratnagiri, Karwar, Kasaragod, Cochin, Quilon, Cape Comorin and Tuticorin. In accordance with the objectives of Phase II of the Project, more emphasis was given to improving our knowledge of the behavioural characteristics of the oil sardine and mackerel and also to evolving methodologies for fishery forecasting appropriate to Indian conditions. Hydrography/plankton/fishing surveys were conducted during the southwest monsoon to assess the intensity of upwelling and to establish possible correlations between the behaviour of commercially important pelagic fishes and the variations of environmental factors observed in space and time. Data related to the process of upwelling were collected mainly to evaluate the extent and intensity o f upwelling and also to verify the variations of certain physical parameters noted during the Phase I.
