    Abstract

    Fisheries is one of the fastest growing food sector in the world economy, which provides livelihood for more than 200 million people around the globe. India, being the second largest producer of fish in the world, contributes about 5.43 percent of the world production. Fisheries sector plays a very important role in the socio – economic development of the country by providing a source of livelihood with direct employment to over one and a half million people, besides the indirect employments, contributes much to the food security and export earnings of the country as well. Eventually, there are wide-ranging variations in marine fish landings, which might have serious impacts on the economy of the country. Even though the quantity of landings is depreciating in thirteen major marine areas out of fifteen there is almost a fivefold increase in the case of India, since 1950.Over the years, the sector continues to play strategic role in food security, international trade and employment generation. Indian economy has grown consistently post-liberalization with higher purchasing power and consistent demand for diversified food products.
