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.
