    Abstract

    The estimated average annual landings of large pelagics in Kerala during 2013 -2019 was 35678 t, which formed about 16% of the national average landings of large pelagics of India. The average group wise contribution during 2013-2019 was mainly by tunas (54%), billfishes (15%), seer fishes (14%) and barracudas (8%). The peak fishery occurred during October to March with trawl nets, gill nets and hooks & lines employed. The mechanized, motorized and traditional sectors tap the resources which have demand in the domestic as well as export markets and a supply chain is well established. Appropriate management measures for sustainable utilization are flagged.
