Abstract: The present study was conducted in Palghar district of North Konkan Coastal Zone and Ratnagiri district of South Konkan Coastal Zone. Two tahsils were selected from each district and two hundred and forty fishermen were selected. Personal interview technique was used for data collection. An important aspect of the study was to identify the constraints operating against the Sustainable Livelihood Activities of the fishermen. The problems that are experienced by the fishermen for improvement in various Sustainable Livelihood Activities taken will be of immense help for training organization, policy makers, extension personnel, bank officials to plan future activities most effectively. The various technological, situational and policy constraints faced by artisanal fishing communities in their various Sustainable Livelihood Activities in the Coastal Konkan Region of Maharashtra state were studied to assess the poverty, food insecurity and vulnerability of artisanal fishing communities in the Coastal Konkan Region of Maharashtra state. “Lack of ready package of fish culture” (91.67 per cent), was the major constraint in fishing activities followed by “no drying and processing land” (66.67 per cent), “dominance of middlemen in marketing” (87.50 per cent), and “inefficient execution and implementation of government programmes” (77.92 per cent).
