Approach had been made to study the various fishing techniques in the Towkak River in Assam and Nagaland. The combination of both hills and plain regions along the river, showed a higher diversity of fishing gears and equipments. The cost benefit and efficiency analysis results that Cast net was most efficacious fishing gear and also possesses the highest value of Mechanization Index (MI) which portrayed, a popular and most used gear.
