The fisheries sector is rarely a strategic sector for national economic development. Although it plays a prominent role in only a few countries such as Iceland, Namibia, Maldives and other small island developing states rich in fishery resources relative to their populations, it is nonetheless an important economic activity, and very often a strategic one, in many coastal regions of the world. Indeed, in many countries, fish export is a major contributor to foreign exchange earnings, often ranking far higher than other agricultural commodities. The major trade flow -- from south to north -- underlines the significance of this sector for the trade balance of many developing countries. Licensing fees of foreign fishing fleets are another source of foreign exchange revenue from marine fishery resources, especially in West African and South Pacific countries. The fishing industry is based on traditional techniques from many years. It has certain disadvantages. It harms the marine life as well as causes the water pollution due to lost fishing gears, ropes, etc. Many times the large fishes risks their life due to entanglement of very large fishes in fishing instruments and machineries. Also, traditional fishing causes death of workers due to risky techniques and also effects on costal. In order to avoid this there is need to apply solution of rope-less fishing technique. Many times death of fishermen occurs due to fire hazard, sinking etc. Automated fishing techniques can save the life of fishermen by providing human less fishing. This paper contains designing and analysis of fishing device which will eliminate the use of fishing ropes as well as it will reduce human work and injury rates as well.
