    Abstract

    Coastal human communities have been exploiting the sea as a source of food from time immemorial. Ancient communities have long had codes of conduct, largely undocumented, for judicial use of these bioresources. Some such practices are evident from the understanding of traditions of ancient hunter gatherer communities which have persisted up to modern times. The stone age Onge tribe of the Andamans practice discretion while hunting dugong and sea turtle and never harvest in excess. Examples of fishery conservation are several in Indian history. The edicts of Emporer Ashoka lays out rules for fishing. The fifth inscription of Delhi Shivliks bans activities of fishing and fish selling from Ashadh full moon to Paush full moon, on the days of Pusyankshtr in Paush, full moon, a day before full moon, no moon and both Pratipadas. Fishing permits find mention in Arthashastra of Kutilya as a means to conserve fishery resources.
