Kalamukku fish landing centre: Kochi (Ernakulam District)

The Marine Fisheries Census of Kerala (2010) lists Kalamukku as landing centre, not as fishing village.

Kalamukku fish landing centre lies north of Gosree Bridge in Kochi. Compare these large catches with the very small catches of the south, such as at Vizhinjam.







These trawlers are much more sophisticated than the craft used in the south, and mechanized. Compare these with the small, unsophisticated craft such as at Valiathura.



The marketat Kalamukku is under roof, on a concrete floor. Most of the southern markets are held on the beach sand with no roof cover.
