According to Romulus Whitaker, famous herpetologist, though there has been no specific count of King Cobras, it can be safely concluded that they have become very rare in most areas. (Sivakumar, 2012) BB Mallesha, director of Dandeli-Anshi tiger reserve explained in an interview that construction of various dams, forest degradation, hunting & poaching, trade of skin & meat, and medicines purposes are the major threats to the survival of King Cobra. Several initiatives have been take in the local level to preserve the vulnerable species. People have been trained in the areas where the survival of King Cobra thrives; one of such place is Agumbe.

Snakebite is a fascinating, yet neglected public health problem resulting in life threatening medical emergencies (WHO, 2010; Kanchan et al., 2012; Kasturiratne et al., 2008).

Selectivity of fishing gears: There are several studies dealing with the selectivity of trawl fishery around the world (Broadhurst and Kennelly, 1997, Broadhurst et al., 2004, Broadhurst et al., 1999, Grimaldo et al., 2007).
