    Abstract

    Indian fisheries and aquaculture is an important sector of agriculture, providing employment, food and nutritional security particularly to the rural poor and better access to protein rich food for all. Globally, the capture fisheries and aquaculture produced 154 million tonnes of fish in 2011 with a per capita food fish supply of 18.8 kg. During the year, India contributed 5.33 per cent of the world total fish production (4.57 per cent of the total capture fish production and 6.63 per cent in aquaculture production). India ranked second after China in the world aquaculture production. Though India is one of the largest consumers of the fish in the world, per capita consumption of fish, at 4.78 kg/head/year, is one of the lowest in the world.
