    Marine capture fisheries is an important component of the fisheries sector in India. Marine fish landings in India have historically been estimated using the multi-stage stratified random sampling method developed by CMFRI in 1959. These estimates form an important input for formulating fisheries management measures and taking policy decisions by planners. The data for 2014 was released during this quarter and indicated that the catches have declined mainly due to reduced landings of the Indian oil sardine. After a record high landing of 7.2 lakh tonnes in 2012 the oil sardine has shown a declining trend. While there is no doubt that recent erratic climatic patterns have contributed to this phenomenon, excessive fishing and large scale capture of juvenile fishes for fish meal preparation and non-edible use is also flagged.
