I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 03. FISHERIES

 

II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 

Lakshadweep is the only coral atolls of our country which has unique geographical features and with scattered islands. It has a vast lagoon of 4,200 Sq. Kms, Territorial waters of 20,000 Sq. Km, Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 4,00,000 Lakhs Sq. Kms and coastal line of about 132 Kms.   The sea around Lakshadweep is rich in fishery resources and the main fishery resource in the islands are Tuna.  The estimated marine fishery potential resources in the sea around Lakshadweep is about one lack tones of tuna and tuna like fishes and about an equal quantity of Shark.  

                       

A huge part of the population in Lakshadweep depends on the fishery resources which is also the main livelihood of the inhabitants of the islands. Of the 27 islands and a number of submerged banks and open reef's, the fishing activities are mainly concentrated in 11 islands and reef areas of Perumul Par, Valiyapani and Cheriyapani. There has been a steady growth of fish production, which once stood at 500 tonnes during 1950s crossed 12,000 tonnes in the recent years which is about 5% of the estimated fishable potential. Therefore, there is ample scope for developing the fishing industry in Lakshadweep. The tuna fishery and “masmin”, a traditional fishery product of Lakshadweep needs no introduction in Indian marine fishery products.  The “Pole and Line” fishing a unique fishing method for the exploitation of tuna is only found in Lakshadweep in the Indian continent. The present annual production is about 12,000 tonnes, which is hardly 5% of the total potential.   About 80% of the total landing of Lakshadweep contributes Skip Jack tuna and 60% of the total landing is converted to dried products and about 40% goes for local consumption.  

                       

The islands are scattered miles away from each other. Though, the tuna fishing is done deploying specially designed mechanised fishing boats, the traditional country crafts and country crafts fitted with Out Board Motors (OBM) are also widely used for fishing in Lakshadweep. Over the years, the local fishermen used primitive methods for fishing using traditional country crafts. By the inception of Department of Fisheries in 1959 by the UT Administration tremendous changes has been brought in the Fisheries sector by  formulation and implementation of various Developmental Schemes and Programmes with prime objectives of enhancement of fish production aiming the socio-economic conditions of the fisher folks. One of the main developmental programmes of the department is the mechanization of the fishing vessels and by this date there are about 900 motorized fishing boats in Lakshdweep.

 

As a policy for augmenting fish production and to create employment opportunities, it is necessary to diversify fishing techniques. Other than the Skipjack tuna, no fish is caught on commercial basis. The Yellowfin tuna resource is almost unexploited since the technology for deep sea fishing is not prevalent in the territory. As such, more efforts are required to develop deep sea fishing during the XIth Plan period. The Lakshadweep Development Corporation Ltd (LDCL) has been mandated to develop the fisheries sector in the territory. The deep sea fishing using monofilament long line gear done by the Corporation proved the efficiency of the gear for exploitation of deep sea resources. The Tuna Canning Factory established and run by the Department has been transferred to LDCL has been producing good quality of value added products like canned tuna, tuna curry etc. As there is huge demand for canned tuna in India and abroad, the canning factory at Minicoy will be modernised to increase the production capacity. Global tender for procurement of Mother Vessel cum long liner, a vessel of its kind in the country will be floated shortly.

                       

Plan Schemes also envisages human resources development by way of running a Fishermen Training Centre, conducting short term training programmes like in-vessel training, training in Marine Workshops to develop the skills in navigation, repair and maintenance of marine diesel engines. Aiming improvements in post harvest operations and marketing, stress is also given for creation of infrastructural facilities such as setting up of Ice Plants, Tunnel freezers, Cold Storages. For preservation of fish on board and at shore Insulated Ice Boxes will be provided to the fishermen.

 

The Lakshadweep Marine Fishing Regulation, 2000 and Marine Fishing Rules, 2001 came in force in Lakshadweep during the tenth Plan period. This territory is vulnerable to illegal fishing by outside fishing boats of the neighbouring States.  Effective measures are required to be taken up to prevent entry of outside boats in the territorial waters of Lakshadweep for fishing by effectively enforcing Marine Fishing Regulation. As proposed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries a uniform web enabled registration & licensing (ReAL craft) of fishing crafts to be launched in November 2010 in co-operation with National Informatics Centre.

 

From this year onwards it is also proposed to extend assistance to the fishermen during lean/ban period. An amount of Rs 25 Lakhs is proposed for 2011-12.

4. Objectives of the scheme (Separately for each component)

a) (Component Name)                : Operation and maintenance of 55 ft & 38 ft Vessels for experimental fishing

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The proposal is to provide facilities like line haulers and to modify 2nos of 38 feet vessels for the operation of monofilament fishing gear for exploitation of deep sea resources like Yellowfin tuna, Big eye tuna Bill fishes etc. Some modification is necessary for 55 feet boat hence a provision of Rs 15.00 Lakhs is proposed.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : The vessels were used for imparting training to the local youth on diversified fishing methods for the exploration of reef fishes and deep sea fishes.

 

b) (Component Name)               : Purchase and maintenance of self propelled Barge

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The far flung land less reef areas in the EEZ of Lakshadweep such as the Valiyapani, Cheriyapani, Perumalpar par etc are rich fishing grounds and the fishermen of Lakshadweep camp in these areas for fishing by the smaller fishing boats for days together facing a lot of problems. Presently, these boats need to return to the base island frequently for fuel, provisions etc and for unloading the processed fish catch. This frequent return to the base islands adds up the in put cost of operation and yield the programme economically unviable. To economize this operation, the Department has initiated action to introduce Self Propelled barge for aiding fishing in these distant fishing grounds by way of supply of provision, fuel, water, transporting fish products etc and acting as a communication repository in these remote and faraway fishing grounds.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : During 2010-2011 the proposed barge could not be purchased due to some administrative reasons. This will be procured and commissioned during 2011-2012.

 

c) (Component Name)                : Supply of Fishing Gears and accessories

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The proposal under this component is to purchase and supply fishing gears and accessories to the fishermen at a subsidised rate @ 25%.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Fishing gear materials were procured and sold to the fishermen of various islands through the Fisheries Field Units.

 

d) (Component Name)               : Installation of Fish Aggregating Devices around the islands

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Installation of Fish Aggregating Devices around the islands is a great success and further it is decided to install more FADs in the needy areas and to repair and maintain FADs already installed.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : 29 numbers of Fish Aggregating devices has been installed during the year 2005-2006. More number of FADs need be deployed during 2011-2012. Provision is made for deployment of New Devices and repair and maintenance of the FADs already deployed.

 

e) (Component Name)                : Insurance coverage to the fishermen and fishing boats:

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The entire fishing sector in the Union Territory is functioning in an unorganised setup. There are no insurance schemes for the fishermen venturing into the sea for the livelihood. Hence naturally there is no any group insurance etc for the fishing folks or the vessels in the disastrous situations. The department is planning to cover the fishing folk under insurance individually & hence necessary provision has been made in the Plan proposals of the year 2011-12.

The purchase from Kerala and transport to different islands for storing for sale to fishermen includes transportation in barges and a lot of handlings at different stages in transit. Therefore the selling price of HSD in the islands is as high as 17% than the selling price at mainland. Therefore in order to compensate the huge variation of rates, it is necessary to provide subsidy to the fishermen on the additional cost incurring on HSD due to transportation from mainland to the islands.

1. Scheme No.                          : 0308

 

2. Name of the schemes          : Introduction of Mother Vessel/ Collector and Long Liner Vessel

 

3. Whether continuing or new     : Continuing

 

4. Objectives of the scheme (Separately for each component)

 

a) (Component Name)                : Cost of Mother Vessels

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Mother vessel type fishing is an ideal concept in a place like Lakshadweep which has geographical disadvantage of scattered islands and isolation island to island from any mainland port. The proposal is to introduce multipurpose vessels used for fishing as well as collection of fish from smaller fishing crafts and store on board after initial preservation and processing. During the 10th Five Year Plan, a feasibility report has been got prepared by the Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIMK) which recommended for introduction of one mother vessel initially and the Integrated Perspective Plan prepared by the ICAR recommends introduction of two such vessels. A mother vessel would take a good number of smaller boats to distant fishing grounds where there is no land to halt for fishing for about 10-15 days. The mother vessel will fish during this period with smaller boats and the smaller boats will conduct fishing and deliver the catch to the mother vessel for processing and storage. The accompanying smaller boats can receive provisions like diesel, fresh water etc from the mother vessel there by the operational cost of the smaller boats will also drastically come down as the frequent return to the base island for fuel and provisions is delineated. The mother vessel would carry the fish collected to the mainland for domestic as well as export marketing. This would enhance the exploitation of distant fishing grounds such as Cheriyapani, Valiyapani, Perumulpar and Ezhikalpeni etc and boost the fish landing in Lakshadweep while providing economic fishing operation to the fishermen. This would also facilitate availability of raw material for the integrated fish processing plant proposed to be established by the end of 11th Plan. The proposal for the 11th Plan is to introduce 2 numbers of Mother Vessels.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Approval from Government if India obtained and the mother vessel will be procured during the Financial year 2010-2011. Agreement for consultancy executed in October 2009. Draft tender documents prepared

 

b) (Component Name)               : Introduction of Trawler/ 2 nos medium size vessels having fish preservation and processing facilities on board

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : For starting Large Scale fishing in the islands it is decided to introduce fishing trawler

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    :

 

5. Proposed out lay for Annual Plan 2011-2012 : ` 350.00 Lakhs
