    Abstract

    CMFRI Special Publication No.121(“Handbook on Application of GIS as a Decision Support Tool in Marine Fisheries”) is a pioneering attemptto elucidatethe application of GIS in the marine fisheries sector in India, describing the protocols for mapping marine fishery resources caught using all the gears operated along Indian coast, using GIS platform. The hand book describes the utilities of satellite-based technologies in marine fisheries and emphasizes the need for expanding our vision for satellite based technologies beyond Remote Sensing. The protocols described, with sufficient illustrations in the handbook will serve as a handy tool for incorporating spatial data in marine fisheries distribution, management and conservation studies. The hand book also provides guidelines and precautions for fishery researchers while analyzing marine fisheries data on a GIS platform. Further, the book suggests methods toincorporate GISroutines to study fisheries in relation to variability in environmental and ecological characteristics. The prospects of GIS based studiesin developingMonitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) in fisheries management with Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) and marine spatial planning for sustainable development of fisheries and mariculture are also discussed in the handbook.
