    Abstract

    Karnataka, with a 300 km coastline supports livelihood of 1.7 lakh fisherfolk population residing in 144 marine fishing villages. The marine fish production in the state reached a record 5.29 lakh tonnes (t) in 2016. The increase is attributed to the hike in the landings of Priacanthus spp., lesser sardines and oil sardine in 2016 as compared to 2015. Among the three coastal districts of Karnataka, Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts contributed 38% each, followed by the Uttara Kannada (24%). The Mangalore and Malpe Fisheries Harbours are the main contributors in the Dakshnina Kannada and Udupi districts respectively.
