    Between 1980 and 1985, the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) demonstrated fishing techniques with various types of highopening bottom trawls in Tamil Nadu and Orissa, in cooperation with the fisheries departments of these states. New deck equipment and machinery and simple trawl rigging accessories for standard Indian coastal trawlers were also locally developed, demonstrated and introduced. In Gujarat, training and experimental fishing in high-opening bott om trawling were conducted early 1983 by CIFNET (Central Institute of Fisheries Nautical and Engineering Training). BOBP provided technical and material support to the Cl FN ET effort. It was hoped that high-opening bottom trawls would help relieve fishing pressure on prawn resources, put idle prawn trawlers to gainful use during the off season and help tap underexploited food fish resources. The innovations with deck equipment and gear accessories were intended to make trawling effort safe r, more efficient and more comfortable. This paper summarizes the results of the high-opening bottom trawl demonstrations and the response to them in the three states. It also sums up the impact of trawling effort following BOBP demonstrations on fishery resources; and discusses the present status of gear designs and of deck equipment. Future prospects concerning high-opening bottom trawling are also discussed.

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

    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.

    Coastal Village Development In Four Fishing Communities Of Adirampattinam, Tamil Nadu, India - BOBP/WP/19 1982
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes four fishing communities of Adirampattinam, a town about 350km from Madras, and analyses their social structure. It also describes the strategy adopted by the Bay of Bengal Programme to improve the lot of these communities and the experimental work in this direction — which was carried out in cooperation with the fisheries department of Tamil Nadu and non-government agencies. This paper was drafted early 1982 and refers mainly to work carried out during 1980 - 1981. The Bay of Bengal Programme for the Development of Small-Scale Fisheries, GCP/RA5/040/SWE, referred to in brief as the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP), is funded by the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA) and executed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Five countries — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand are members of the Programme. Its main aims are to develop, demonstrate and promote technologies and methodologies to improve the c onditions of small-scale fisherfolk and the supply of fish from the small-scale sector in the Bay of Bengal region. This document is a working paper and has not been cleared by the FAO, the Government of Tamil Nadu or the Government of India.
