Community ﬁshing is a unique feature in the state of Assam of north eastern part of India. Here, ﬁshing is done in groups of hundreds of people and thus the name. The present case study narrates a community ﬁshing event in the ﬂoodplain wetlands (beels) of Kamrup District in Assam, India, witnessing participation of diﬀerent tribal communities in ﬁshing and the modus operandi of diverse types of ﬁshing gears with catch details. Technical speciﬁcations of the diﬀerent types of gears employed were collected from the direct observation following a prescheduled proforma. The design details of the gear were documented and the photographs of diﬀerent gears were prepared and gear categorisation is presented based on the FAO catalogue of Fishing Gear Designs. The communal fishing practices of local communities are described along with the respective roles of men and women.
