    The marine fish landings across the years had increased and the landings were estimated at 3.78 million tonnes during 2013-14. The total valuation of marine fish landings at the landing centre (point of first sales) was estimated at 29872 crores and that of the retail centres was found to be 47186 crores during 2013-14. Over the years the valuation had registered a ten per cent growth in the landing centre and more than 20 per cent in the retail markets. The markets had been the major driving force behind the realization of the huge value of landings. It is also important to note that the marketing efficiency was found to be quite high with the fishermen share in the consumer’s rupee of 63.88 per cent. Nevertheless the producer share in the consumer’s rupee has varied sizeable based on the commercial value of fish, seasons, landings source and proximity to consumption centres.
