    Through the export of prawns and other high quality marine products India earns quite a lot of foreign exchange. This is because these products realize high prices in the international market and there are no restrictions for them to enter the markets of the industrialized countries. In many cases however the modernization of fisheries which is often referred to as the 'Blue Revolution' damaged the ecology of the coastal areas and threatens the livelihood of the small-scale fishermen and their families. The study has a ·deeper look into the process of modernization of fisheries in general and its impact on small-scale fishermen on the Chennai coast in particular.
