D. C. Shetty, C. R. Reddy, M. S. Kusma and B. Neelakantan

As knowledge on fishing gear and fishing methods is essential for scientific and judicious exploitation and management of any capture fishery, a survey was undertaken to study different types of gears and fishing methods used both in inshore and estuarine (Kali Estuary) waters of Karwar. Different types of gears and crafts used to catch demersal and pelagic fishes in inshore waters and a brief account of various types of indigenous methods in practice to catch different species of finfish and shellfish in the estuarine waters are discussed.
