    Insurance in the fisheries sector in India, unlike that of crop and livestock, does not have a long history or an organized structure to boast of. Except for the presence of a few public sector insurance companies and cooperative bodies at the local level with limited scale of activity, the sector has received little attention either at the central or state levels. The private sector operation in this arena is also limited to a few cases scattered over time and space. Among the available options, the ‘Group Accident Insurance Scheme for Active Fishermen’ is the only major programme presently in operation that covers the life/disability risks of the boat crew.
