    We welcome the esteemed readers to this issue of MFIS with a bouquet of articles on various facets of the marine fisheries sector in India. The National Policy on Marine Fisheries (NPMF), 2017 notified by the Government of India on 28th April, 2017 provides guidance to usher in a Blue Revolution. This involves the sustainable utilization and management of the marine fish stocks occurring in the Indian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 2.02 million square kilometres through suitable fisheries governance protocols. Successful fishery management ensures sustainability for fish stocks, food for consumers, and livelihood for those in the industry. In this context, the lead article explores the various facets of marine fisheries governance in India, in the realm of Marine Spatial Planning and conforming to the FAO’s voluntary Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (FAO-CCRF). Timely availability of credit is of crucial importance in the fisheries sector. The findings of a case study on fishery credit delivery system in Kerala gives several valuable insights that will help in formulation of appropriate policies for the benefit of all stakeholders and bring about economic development in the sector. Bivalve farming with its ample scope to bring good financial returns and livelihood options attracted the attention of fish farmers but availability of seeds of the right quality and adequate quantity was always a serious constraint. The development of an indigenous micro-nursery system with a proven capacity to produce seeds on a large scale is a cherished achievement of ICAR-CMFRI. It has opened the door for a wider adoption of the bivalve farming in the country. The various facets of marine fisheries sector has also been captured in the various research and short communications presented in this issue of MFIS.
