    Abstract

    Ahead of World Oceans’ Day, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR)-Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) released data on Friday that shows an alarming rise in overfishing in Maharashtra, particularly of juvenile fish. Aside from posing a threat to marine life, fish not being allowed to grow to their natural size means an economic loss of an estimated ₹686 crore for the state in 2018. After analysing data collected throughout the year, the CMFRI, Mumbai, has concluded that juvenile fish catch across Maharashtra led to an overall loss exceeding ₹686 crore in 2018. The amount was ₹355 crore for 2017. “Our coastal waters remain open for unlimited entry and non-restricted harvest of fish. The limited management options with increasing fishing effort and high juvenile bycatch is a worrying trend,” said Ajay Nakhawa, from the CMFRI, Mumbai. Juvenile fish are used to make different kinds of processed food and in the aquaculture industry.
