the world's fourth largest fishing nation, accounting for over 4.39% of the
global output. It is also a major contributor of foreign exchange earnings for
several countries including India
through export. The potential forward and backward linkages through boat
building, construction of fishing harbours, fish processing etc., contribute
further to diversification and strengthening of the regional and national
economy. Modern fishing devices like motor boats are increasing the pollution
and destroy the natural environment.
But the ancient tradition of fishing by using the traditional devices
like Pari, Katcha, Ootha, Sorati,
Catamaran, and Karaivalai have
become sustainable way of harvesting inland and marine life without damaging
the environment of coral mangrove, wetland and sea-grass bed habitats. It has
been practiced by the coastal fishing communities.
