The offshore fishery resources off Cannanore have been assessed from the exploratory trawling data of the Indo-Norwegian Project Vessels during the 3-year period, from 1963-'64 to 1965-'66.

Observations on length, sex, and maturity stages of the more important species recorded in the trawl catches are given.
