Abstract: The objective of the study is to study the fishing equipments used by fisherwomen in 3 villages and 1 island located in and around Loktak Lake, Manipur. This study utilizes both primary and secondary sources of data, with a sample size of 400 respondents. The study was conducted with a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 3%. Semi - structured interviews were carried out over the academic year 2019?2020. The fisherwomen in the surveyed region utilized 54 percent of lift nets (Nupi El) and dip nets (El Jao), 40 percent of gill nets (Lang), 1.75 percent of plunging cover baskets (Longthrai), 0.75 percent of spears (Long), and several other methods. However, in modern methods, the utilization of gill nets, commonly referred to as ?Lang?, is the most efficient fishing technique, with a 100 percent adoption rate among women, resulting in high productivity. Consequently, women have made substantial contributions to the development of Manipur?s fishing sector.
