Future Vision for Fisheries Management for Pondicherry and Karaikal Regions

    The primary objective for the two-day workshop held on October 20-21, 2011 was to develop a vision statement on fisheries management for the Pondicherry and Karaikal region as part of our earlier involvement with the FIMSUL programme in their Stakeholders and Livelihood Analysis of Fisheries in the states of Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry. The workshop was attended by about sixty participants representing the various stakeholders in fisheries from both Pondicherry and Karaikal regions, including twenty women. The participants through various exercises discussed and drafted the various problems, including problems due to resource depletion, the current state and the future of fisheries resources and the the various opportunities and obstacles in evolving strategies for a more sustainable fishing in the region.
