    Indian fisheries and aquaculture is an important sector of food production providing nutritional security, besides livelihood support and gainful employment to more than 14 million people, and contributing to agricultural exports. With diverse resources ranging from deep seas to lakes in the mountains and more than 10% of the global biodiversity in terms of fish and shellfish species, the country has shown continuous and sustained increments in fish production since independence. The sector constitutes about 6.3 percent of the global fish production and contributes to 0.91 percent of the GDP and 5.23 percent of the agricultural GDP. The total fish production of 13.34 million metric tonnes presently has nearly 74 percent contribution from the inland sector and rest by the marine sector. Paradigm shifts in terms of increasing contributions from inland sector and further from aquaculture have been significant over the years. With high growth rates, the different facets, viz., marine fisheries, coastal aquaculture, inland fisheries, freshwater aquaculture, and coldwater fisheries are contributing to the food basket, health, economy, exports, employment and tourism of the country.More than 50 different types of fish and shellfish products are being exported to 75 countries around the world. Fish and fish products have presently emerged as the largest group in agricultural exports from India, with 13.77 lakh tonnes in terms of quantity and ₹ 45,106.89 crore in value.
