    Marine fisheries in India are typically multi-species, multi-gear with open access. Under the Marine Fisheries Regulation Act(s) of the various maritime states, certain legislations with aim of protecting the fish stocks and also provide sustainable yield are in place. Among these, the Seasonal Fishing Ban (SFB) is one implemented consistently across all maritime states for more than two to three decades since its inception in Kerala in 1988. The lead article highlights various intricacies of data collection and analysis required for basing a SFB. Another important communication is on seaweeds which are rich and renewable source of food and high value biomolecules and chemicals. Products like agar, alginates and carrageenan have much demand in the food and bio-medical industries. Scientific seaweed farming is required to build up seaweed based industries in India which has the potential to generate employment and valuable export opportunities. Also their capacity for carbon sequestration and reducing coastal pollution are positive factors to promote seaweed farming in the country. The articles presented in this issue of MFIS deal with these topics in detail.
