    The Indian fisheries date back to time immemorial, but, the saga of success has been related to early post independence years. With renewed accent on optimum utilization of country’s aquatic wealth for fisheries, the Government of India earmarked an ambitious programme of mechanization and modernization through upgradation of technology during early fifties. Therefore, Indian fisheries witnessed impressive transformation from a highly traditional rural activity to technologically sound well developed industry. Indian fisheries sector has growing steadily from the first plan onwards with the annual fish production of 0.754 million tonnes during 1950-51 to the level of 9.57 million tonnes during 2012-13.
