    Abstract

    India’s marine fisheries development has been guided in the past by the five-year plans and by the policy documents of 1994 and 2004 brought out by the Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries (DADF), Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare, Government of India. As a renewable natural resource, fish harvests need to be ecologically and economically sustainable to ensure equity and livelihood security to fishers. Numbering nearly 40 lakhs, fishers and allied workers are one of the economically weaker sections of the society and their well-being and economic development is of paramount importance to the country. In order to uplift this section of the society, meet the food security and also to ensure sustainable harvests of fishery resources, comprehensive policies are necessary.
