    Marine fish landings in India fell by 5.3 per cent in 2015 from 2014 with Karnataka, Goa and Kerala showing the sharpest drops following serious deficit in oil sardine catch, which fell more than 50 per cent. Sea fish catch in 2015 totalled 3.40 million tonnes, down from 3.59 million tonnes in 2014. Oil sardine catch, the mainstay of traditional fishermen in the three southwestern States, fell to 2.66 lakh tonnes last year from 5.45 lakh tonnes in 2014, said A. Gopalakrishnan, director of the Kochi-based Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, releasing the data here on Saturday. The sharp fall in sardine landings has been attributed to several reasons, including rising water temperature, El Nino effect and overexploitation. Catching of spawning stocks and algal bloom too are reasons.
