    No results found.

    This paper results from a project to examine various development alternatives concerning fishing craft development in Kerala. The project, which was in operation from April 1981 to April 1983, was meant to provide the Kerala Government with information needed to make investment decisions concerning craft and engines. Specifically, the project examined whether the performance of Thanguvala canoes can be improved by motorising them with locally made engines; whether a new type of sailcraft ca n be developed to replace traditional dugout canoes; whether motorisation can improve the efficiency of small-mesh gillnetters; and whether a new type of engine-cum sail beachcraft can be developed to operate large-mesh driftnets. Fishing trials for project activities were held in co-operation with local fishermen and crew at villages near Quilon and Trivandrum. On behalf of BOB P. consultant Oyvind Guibrandsen provided technical assistance for executing the project. On behalf of the Govern ment of Kerala, Mr V G Joseph, Co-ordination Officer in the Directorate of Fisheries, provided counterpart assistance. The project was initially funded by the FAO/UNDP project RAS/77/044, “Small-Scale Fisheries Promotion in South East Asia”, and later by the FAO/SIDA project, GCP/RAS/040/SWE, “Development of Small-Scale Fisheries in the Bay of Bengal”. The RAS/77/044 project, which terminated in 1981, undertook factual surveys and documentation on small-scale fisheries to help research ers, government planners and investors.

    Project
    Marine Small-Scale Fisheries Of Sri Lanka: A General Description- BOBP/INF/06 1984
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper attempts a brief and factual presentation of data and baseline information on the main features of the small-scale marine fisheries of Sri Lanka. It could serve as an introduction to the subject leading to deeper studies of particular aspects; as a source of general information; or, more particularly, as a background document for use in discussions on the planning and programming of development assistance. The paper has been prepared by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). It revises and updates a document with the same title, issued in June 1977 by the FAO/UNDP project, Development of Small-Scale Fisheries in Southwest Asia, RAS/74/031, which was prepared jointly by the Sri Lanka Ministry of Fisheries and the project. Some assistance for the present revision was provided by a national consultant, Mr. V. A. Fernando. The small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme began 1979 from Madras. It covers five countries bord ering the Bay of Bengal-Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The project’s main aims are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate methodologies and technologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and increase the supply of fish from the small-scale sector in member-countries.
