Abstract:
Small-scale commercial or subsistence fishing is an example of traditional fishing practices. The local community uses traditional fishing techniques. A wide variety of gears were observed and surveyed, including gill nets (under various names), cast nets, fixed bag nets, encircling gear, crab traps, dol nets, and stick-trap techniques (for mudskippers) and their operation methods were recorded from the selected villages (Krushnapur, Kaniyet, Ranabhatha, and Dholai) of Navsari district. Fishermen in these villages possess important knowledge about the greatest fishing spots, the ideal times to capture a variety of species and the best methods for doing so. The Navsari District in Gujarat is home to several indigenous fishing communities that have relied on fishing as a means of sustenance for generations. However, with changing times and modern fishing techniques, traditional practices have faced challenges. This paper aims to shed light on these indigenous fishing practices, highlighting their cultural significance, sustainable nature, and potential for preservation and promotion.
