    Abstract

    The oceanic location of ANI makes them ideal for the development of oceanic fisheries. The oceanic tuna resources, especially around the Bay islands are least exploited since, India does not possess the required expertise in oceanic tuna fishery. The exploratory surveys conducted by the Government of India vessels have provided ample evidence regarding the richness of tuna resources in the area. Estimated potential of tunas in the seas around the ANI is 32000 tonnes in the coastal region and 94000 tonnes in the oceanic region. The possible catch in the oceanic region by along lining in 5000 tonnes and by surface netting is 121 000 tonnes.
