    Abstract

    Sustainable fisheries m anagement options, if implemented properly, indicate possible enhancem ent of harvestable potential in Indian EEZ to a possible extent of 6 million tonnes or more. Opportunities in open sea cage culture and related developments in the field of mariculture during the last 5 years show a way forward in open sea mariculture practices and propose a production ideal to the tune of 4 m illion tonnes in the coming years from m ariculture sector alone. High m ariculture production in countries like China is due to production of sea weeds and molluscs, but, the Indian sea food market comprises mainly of fin fishes of edible standards. If properly implemented, there are possibilities that the marine fish production may be enhanced to the tune of 10 million tonnes (6 million tonnes from capture and 4 million tonnes from mariculture) by 2050. The present review reiterates the need to revalidate the on-going management measures scientifically and pragmatically to enhance the marine fish production in a sustainable manner.
