Month wise, August was the most productive month in terms of revenue generation (17.38%) for OBM gillnetters. Among seasons, winter was more productive with (39.09%) contribution of the total fish catch. Among seasons, winter was more productive with (37.67%) of total revenue contribution. The capital investment of a single OBM gillnetter was Rs. 3,33,379. Similar was the case with variable cost. It was Rs. 1,07,568.41. Fixed cost inclusive of depreciation was Rs. 59,848.2. Total expenditure and revenue of OBM gillnetter was Rs. 1,67,416.41 and Rs. 1,52,778.43 respectively.
