a. Shrimp Ground

Through sustained operation of the Project’s boats during 1954–59 using diversified gear combinations, commercially viable shrimp grounds were located off Karwar (9-33m depth), Mangalore (16-29m), Cannanore (9-25 m depth) , Cochin(9-37 m depth) and Alleppy – Quilon belt (9-37 m depth). Year wise break up of fish landed is furnished in Annexure-III.

b. Deep Sea Lobster Ground

The Deep Sea Lobster resources (Peurulus Sewelli) in depth range of 180 – 460 m along South west coast between Karwar and Cape Comorin was first identified by the Project during 1968-69. The commercial viability of this resource was demonstrated by the Project by resorting to fishing for this resource during 1969-76.

c. Other Bottom Fish Resources

Extensive fishing in other areas lead to locating perch grounds in the Wadge Bank, and the rocky structures between Mahe and Cochin and Nemipterids between depth range of 36-55 m between Quilon and Calicut. Priancathids and deep sea prawns are the other potential resources located during the period.

d. Pelagic Resources

Demonstrating the potential for Sardine, Mackerel and Anchovies through single boat and two boat pelagic trawling and perse-seining was a land mark achievement by the Project on the South West Coast. Long lining for Tuna was attempted by the Project during 1975-77 and positive indications on its development potential recorded along West Coast.

e. Antarctic Krill

ANTARCTIC KRILLThe Project was chosen to lead the first Indian Expedition to exploit Antarctic Krill, supposed to be the sea food of future, organised by Department of Ocean Development deploying its Antarctic Research vessel, Sagar Sampada during 1996. The multi disciplinary and multi institutional team during its three months expedition to Antarctic waters collected a lot of data on Antarctic kill fishery and brought a substantial quantity of krill to the Project for Product development studies.
