    The availability of fish from the sea is declining in recent years mainly due to overexploitation of fish stocks. In order to address the issue of declining capture fisheries, the major management strategy being followed worldwide is the adoption of fishing holidays. Though trawl ban is diligently followed in our country for 45 days in east and west coast annually, it is felt that the same alone may not be sufficient to ensure the long-term sustainability of stocks. Another option is to ban trawling in a phased manner. The demand for fish is increasing year after year as it is an important source of protein and it is an essential nutrient to poor section of the society. Hence in future years the additional marine fish requirement has to be met by farming- Mariculture
