    Millions of fishers along India’s vast coastline eke out a living, contribute to national development and are learning to cope up with conservation of marine resources. Seasonal Fishing Ban (SFB) has been followed since the late 80’s to protect breeding fish population during peak spawning season. An economic valuation of SFB in five of the maritime states shows improved ecosystem services in the form of catch, fisher income, biodiversity, respite to the sea floor and reduced carbon emissions. These benefits outweigh the costs of a ban.
