Neendakara Port is a major sea port and fishing harbour located at a distance of about 8 km from the town of Kollam. The Indo-Norwegian Fisheries Community Project is headquartered here and this place is considered as the spine of fishing and other marine activities of the region.
The project contributed massively to the development of the region, giving great momentum to the port’s fishing activities. The activities under the project include the setting up of a Fishermen Training Institute and the establishment of a boat building yard at Sakthikulangara along with a refrigeration plant.
The fishing port at Neendakara is one of the biggest of the region having the capacity to contain over 500 fishing boats at a time. The area around the port offers an excellent view of the surroundings and from the adjoining bridge, the visitors get to watch the delightful sight of Ashtamudi Lake converging into the vast sea.
