Abstract:  The benefit of indigenous knowledge can be harnessed and improved upon by its appropriate use, establishing validity of such knowledge and integrating it with development programmes. The present study was conducted to gain access to the indigenous knowledge of fishermen of Greater Mumbai and Sindhudurg districts of Maharashtra and its subsequent assessment by experts working in area of fisheries management. A total of 100 fishermen representing the two districts constituted the sample size of the study. The data reported here were gathered through a combination of personnel interview and non-participant observation methods. The study documented rich, varied and potential Indigenous Technical Know-How (ITKs) associated with the management of bag net, shore-seine, gill net, long line and traditional trawl fishery. The validity of few ITKs has also been established by the study.
