    Marine fish landings have shown signs of revival. The fish catch report during 2017 released by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) here on Tuesday showed that landings went up by 5.6% when compared to the previous year. For fishermen and fish-lovers in Kerala there is good news. Indian oil sardine harvest has revived by 176% on Kerala coast. Oil sardine, which was showing a decreasing trend for the past few years, topped the list of marine fishery resources this time with a landing of 3.37 lakh tonnes (8.8 per cent of the total landings) registering an increase of 38 per cent all over India. The year 2016 was the record low within the last two decades for oil sardines. The catch of Indian mackerel also increased whereas the landings of Hilsa shad, threadfin breams and tuna dropped this year.
