    Abstract

    Fish and fishery products are one of the most widely traded food items of world and play a pivotal role in the global food and nutritional security. Fisheries constitute an important sector in many maritime nations, not only as a major food source but also as a generator of foreign exchange earnings and employment. Fish contributes 17% of the global population’s intake of animal protein and provides essential minerals, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids (FAO, 2014). The fisheries sector is a source of employment for more than 200 million people of worldwide (FAO, 2011). In comparison to the other sectors of the world food production, the fisheries and aquaculture sectors are poorly planned and inadequately funded (USAID, 2011). The capture fisheries sector is one of the fastest growing food sectors in India, in addition to aquaculture. The country also has a significant role in global fisheries as the second largest producer of fish in the world. In India, marine fishery sector is largely constituted by capture fisheries. The present annual production is about 3.78 million tonnes (mt), forming 85.7% of the potential yield of 4.41 mt, the split up being, 2.13 mt of pelagic, 2.07 mt of demersal and 0.22 mt of oceanic resources (DAHDF, 2013; CMFRI, 2014).
