Despite having the highest quality of life in the nation, according to metrics of human development, Kerala’s fishing community has been mostly excluded from the overall development process. For instance, compared to the overall population, fisher persons have substantially lower educational attainment. Other development-related indicators, such as a lack of employment opportunities, poverty and hardship, crowded living conditions for both men and women, higher infant mortality rates, a lower sex ratio, and restricted access to health care facilities, also point to the state’s neglect and marginalisation of the fishing community. The purpose of the present paper is to study the health problems of fisherfolk in Adimalathura fishing village in Kottukal Grama Panchayat, Thiruvananthapuram.
