ABSTRACT

This paper explores indigenous traditional knowledge of fisher folks in changing climatic conditions, weather variables and fish availability in the coastal fishing villages of Tamil Nadu and Union Territory of Puducherry. A combination of questionnaires, semi structured interviews with key informants and focus group discussions were carried outto collect the required data. The study found that the fisher folk based on their experiences gained over the years maintained some important traditional knowledge in predicting ocean conditions, abnormalities and availability of fish resources. Thislocal or traditional knowledge can have significant implications for scientific research in strengthening and management of ocean advisory system and forecasting the potential fishing zone informations. Incorporation of indigenous traditional knowledge with scientific ocean modeling systems has tremendous potential to develop reliable scientific forecasts and accurate future predictions.
