Abstract:

The aim of the study was to examine the Cost and Return in Marine Fish Production in Gujarat. The primary data were collected from three fishing harbours i.e. Veraval,Porbandar and Mangrol of Gujarat. Every Year, around 13-14 trips were made with around 7 persons on board. On an average, around 14 tonnes fish per trip was caught in selected harbors. The maximum fish was landed at Veraval harbor by selected fishermen, i.e. 14.39 tonnes/trip and the lowest was in Porbandar (12.58 tonnes/trip). The highest cost was incurred by the respondents from Veraval harbor (Rs. 29.62 lakh) while the lowest cost was recorded by respondents from Porbandar harbor (Rs. 22.44 lakh in year) overall Rs. 2.45 crore and Rs. 2.20 crore Gross and net return received in a year by Fisherman. It has been observed that the production of marine fish can be increased by improving the fishing equipments and should be removed or minimized troubles and constraints which are recognized in marine fishing. The dredging problem i.e. loading and unloading of fish due to non-navigable depth near sea shore has been faced by fishermen and therefore harbors dredging needs to be carried out regularly. The prices of fish generally go down sharply during the rainy season (October to December), and for that reason marketing as well as processing activities require to be make stronger by the government.
