The study mainly focused on the reasons behind their deprivation and poor condition. The data were collected from both primary and secondary sources. The fishermen are mainly dependent on fishing as their only source of livelihood. The fishermen have various problems faced in their daily life cycle. So, they are mostly from merchants where the interest rate is high and they become poor. The food, poor healthcare, poor sanitation, and increased intake of alcohol were found to be the major issues.
