    Abstract

    The Indian oil sardine stock along the Kerala coast is likely to suffer a setback during the coming years, according to the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI). "Although a record catch of nearly four lakh tons of oil sardine was registered in the state in 2012, a gradual decrease was recorded in the landings during the following years owing to the development of El Nino", said E.M. Abdussamad, scientist at CMFRI. A sharp decline to about 46,000 tons was experienced in 2016 following a strong El Nino year in 2015. With the reduced intensity of El Nino, the sardine catch registered an increase in 2017. The scientists at the CMFRI are of the view that as El Nino is gaining momentum, sardine stock in Kerala waters may be severely affected leading to a substantial drop in catch. Though there was a marginal increase in the production of sardine in 2017 after a record-low harvest in 2016, once again the El Nino, which began to gain pace before the sardine stock revived to its normal level from an earlier depletion, may spell disaster for Kerala's fisheries sector with a dwindling catch, scientists said.
