    Abstract

    One of the major achievements of CMFRI is the development and refinement of a unique method for estimation of fishery catch and effort from the over 8000 km coastline called the "Stratified Multistage Random Sampling Method': With this methodology the lnstitute has been maintaining the National Marine Fisheries Data Centre (NMFDC) with over 9 million catch and effort data records from all maritime states of India for more than 1000 fished speciesSince CMFRI makes estimates of marine fisheries landings from all of the Indian coast, voluminous information is generated which is processed using the most modern tools and computer applications. This necessitates codifying all the species which are caught and landed. The CMFRI, has therefore, coded (4 digits) all the species which are caught, incidentally caught and some which are likely to be caught in future. The list is constantly under revision because of nomenclatural changes and additions to the list. The listing is also published in print for use by field data collectors.
