    Abstract

    Only Kerala and Karnataka have so far notified similar guidelines. Last year, Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) had submitted to the state a proposal to reduce juvenile fishing. A juvenile fish is a fish catch much before it attains its maximum size or has reproduced even once. In a move to curb overfishing of juvenile fish, Maharashtra’s fisheries department has asked the government to notify the minimum landing/legal size (MLS) for 58 commercially important fish species in the state. The MLS is the size at which a particular species can be legally caught, retained and traded. At present, there is no ban or penalty levied on fishermen for catching juvenile fish in the state.
