Abstract

Biodiversity is the fundamental subject of ecology, and its knowledge becomes an integral part for the assessment and conservation of any type of biota, maintains a healthy biosphere and provides direct and indirect value to human beings. Marine environment basically consists of many important biodiversity-rich ecological units. Human beings are highly depending on flora and fauna of the marine ecosystem for the various needs in their life. However, human activities have destroyed the biodiversity in these ecosystems and are mostly responsible for the degradation of all resources directly or indirectly in the earth. Reduction of a single species can affect the energy flow in the various trophic levels and resulted in reduction of biodiversity which might have some serious and long-term effects on the biosphere. To cater the increasing demand for animal protein in the world, catch of fish species are inevitable and leads to overexploitation. Sustainable use of all these resources along with effective execution of strategies and resources management techniques is essential for the conservation of biodiversity marine realm.
