    Abstract

    Marine fisheries sector must have lost up to ₹1,267 crore in 2015 owing to juvenile fishing Indian Fish Meal and Fish Oil Exporters‟ Association (IFAFEA) has said that its members will no longer use oil sardines of less than minimum legal size for production of fish meal and fish oil. The resolution was taken at the end of a stakeholders‟ meeting here on Thursday. Mahesh Raj, CEO, IFAFEA, said the decision emphasised the importance of Indian oil sardines. Fish meal makers recognised the fact that Indian oil sardine was a very important fishery resource across both coasts of India and its sustainability and responsible exploitation was of paramount importance to the economy and stability of both the capture fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Targeted efforts were needed for regulating fishery through implementation of measures of fisheries management, the resolution added.
