Major functions of the department

Fisheries sector plays a crucial role in the well being of Kerala's economy. The importance of fisheries sector in Kerala and the advantageous position in Kerala enjoys a maritime state is well-known because this sector provides employment and income to more than one million people, either directly or indirectly.it satisfies the protein requirements of a considerable chunk of the underprivileged population and it provides considerable revenue especially in foreign exchange, to the exchequer of the state.Among the maritime status in India, Kerala occupies the foremost position in marine fish production, accounting for about 20% of the total landings. The potential of the state in terms of marine fisheries is believed to be about 5.88 lakh tonnes. Besides, this sector contributes around 1.44% to the total GDP and the export of marine products has set ever time record of 1852.93 million US$ during the year 2006.07.

 

The state with its extensive coastal belt of 590km, 3600 Sq.km. of exclusive economic Zone and an extensive inland water spread around 4 lakh hectares provides with abundant fish. The total populace of fisher folk residing in the state of Kerala is estimated to be 11.114 lakh, which includes 8.55 lakh in the marine sector and 2.55 in the inland sector. Out of this, the number of active fishermen is 2.28 lakh (1.90 lakh in marine sector and 0.42 in the inland sector). Currently, there are 222 fishing villages in the marine and 113 fishery villages in the inland sector, where fishing and relative aspects provide livelihood to a vast majority of a population. Nearly 12% of the fisher folk eke out their living from allied activities like marketing/repairing nets, fish vending, processing and other fishery related activities. The State's fisheries sector is a huge one, comprising of 19,173 crafts out of which 7% were mechanised, 44% were motorised and the remaining 49% were non-motorised crafts. Although the fish catches from Kerala coast include more than 300 different species, the commercially important number are about forty only. Prominent among them are seer fish, pomfret and prawn.
Although, Kerala boasts of the highest quality of life in the country as measured by human development indicators, it is a fact that the State's fishing community has largely been left out of the general development experience. Traditional fisher folk who had no other employment option suffered and as a community they continued to lag behind the rest of the State in all areas of development. The fishermen community could not be sidelined, as this sector gives the cheapest source of protein among the deprived section of the society. This marginalization poses a challenge to the notion of Kerala being a "model of development".
 

To change this iniquitous and to bring them to the mainstream of the society, the government and fisheries department has undertaken various projects and programs for increasing production, for conserving and ensuring sustainable exploitation of fisheries wealth, for promoting cultivation of fish and prawns, for development of fishing harbours and facilities for landing of fish, for strengthening facilities for landing of fish, for strengthening facilities for marketing of fish, and for the upliftment and welfare of the fisher folk. Way back in 1988, Kerala set the trend in using an annual fishing closure as a tool in the management of fisheries resources, and several coastal States in India have subsequently followed this route. Ban on monsoon trawling has proved to be an effective measure to conserve the fishery resources for the sustainable development of the fishery in the state.
 

Despite this, the government is in a fast track to implement an 'Aquarian reform' policy which restricted the access right to the territorial waters to only those who actually fish. All absentee owners of fishing equipment would have to leave the fishery in a phased manner. The rights to decide the mode of sale and the floor price for fish would be the prerogative of those which access rights. This would however enhance the value of the output such that the benefits of this accure to the fishers. Nonetheless, the Kerala Debt Relief Commission Bill passes in the Legislative Assembly on March 19, 2008 is a path breaking effort to liberate the fishermen of the state from the clutches of the middlemen and traders who have been exploiting them since decades. It is supposed to provide relief to 1.6 lakh families across the state. However, the Government is making every possible effort to cash in on the spectacular potential of the marine biodiversity which is a blessing and a treasured resource of the state. The Department of Fisheries and its allied sectors viz. Matsyafed, ADAK, KFWEB, FIRMA, FEDA, and BFDA implements the Government's visions and schemes in this sector.
