Marine fisheries are an important source of food, employment and foreign exchange. About one million people work directly in this sector, producing 3 million tonnes annually valued at about 3 billion US $ at production level (CMFRI, 2007). India earns 1.6 billion US $ by exporting fish and fishery products. India is among the top ten fish producing countries of the world, contributing 3.5% to the total world marine fish production.
