Abstract or Summary
  • Small-scale fisheries play an important role in generating employment, income and livelihood to the fisherfolk. It constitutes 81 per cent of the total fisheries sector in India. But, this sector remains neglected and the fisherfolk are socially and economically backward. Even after six decades of planned development nearly 62 per cent of the fisherfolk families do not possess crafts. Resource constraints coupled with absence of fishing and other related infrastructures in most of the fishing villages compel fishermen households to migrate to earn their livelihood. Migrant fishermen formed a new village and follow simple method of fishing, which are eco-friendly, economical in the use of fuel and gears. Their responsible fishing is useful for fishing without any by-catches and wastage of marine resources. With this theoretical background, this paper is framed in such a way to analyze the factors that contribute to the transition of small-scale fisheries to sustainable and responsible fishing in Tamil Nadu, India. Factors which hamper small-scale fisheries development have been discussed. The main focus of the study is on the impact of fishermen migration on the socio-economic status of migrants and also the sustainability of fishing operations without class conflict. Policy implications emerging in the light of the findings of the study are also given briefly.
