Abstract: The Doctoral thesis entitled The Development of the Fishing Industry and its Environmental Implications with special reference to Kanyakumari District - An Economic Study submitted to Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, revolves around the research problem stated in unequivocal terms in the chapter on objectives and methodology. It is a prodigious study based on six objectives and two hypotheses. A comprehensive introduction with fleeting allusions to the salient features of the history of fishing industry and the fishing resources of the country in general is contained in the first chapter. The articles and books of repute reviewed could equipped the investigator with astonishing insights in to the subject which have facilitated the evolution of a suitable theoretical background for the thesis. They have also enabled him to give a vivid portrayal of the growth of the fishing industry in terms of sophisticated fishing gears, fishing crafts and quantities of various kinds of fish landed in every one of 45 of fishing villages which cover the entire coastline of 68 kilometers, during the years from 1997 to 2006. To crown all these, they have helped him in conducting an extensive study of the environmental goods and bads generated by the fishing industry and the fast disappearing species of fishes due to unseasonable fishing and violent disturbances caused by excessive dredging and trawling at the sea bed, which is a natural habitat for certain varieties of fishes. The hypotheses chosen have been adequately verified in the light of the discussions contained in chapters seven and eight. The findings of the study enshrined in the last chapter would enable any one to find out what the thesis is all about. newline
