    Abstract

    Biodiversity in our seas is the result of 3.5 billion years of evolution ie, natural selection working on the consequences of genetic variation. The edifice of marine fisheries has been built on this bedrock. But our understanding on the ways in which biodiversity interplays with marine productivity is nascent and expanding. This becomes important when we analyse Biodiversity conservation vis a vis fishery conservation. Before proceeding further let us get familiarized with some of the basic concepts. Biodiversity is commonly referred to as the combination of species present in an ecosystem. It includes the totality of genes, species, and ecosystems of a region. Each species exhibits genetic diversity also ( referred to as metagenome (Ardura et al.2011)). The Convention on Biological Diversity (1992) defines biodiversity as the variability among living organisms from all sources, including terrestrial, marine, and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part.
