    Abstract

    Lakshadweep Group of Islands, the little specks, in the Arabian Sea has a total geographical area of a meager 32 Km2 only. The same fluctuate due to seasonal erosions and accretions. The arable land of the Islands is hardly 26 Km2 which has to accommodate the entire essential infrastructures including the housing needs. However, availability of 4 lakh Km2 of Exclusive Economic Zone, 20,000 Km2 of territorial waters, 4,200 Km2 of lagoons, 6 submerged sandbanks, and 3 coral reefs make it the second-largest Island territory of India. The waters around the Islands are immensely rich with various types of fishery resources. The blue lagoons with highly attractive flora & fauna are extremely enchanting and are the most suitable for Responsible Tourism Programs (RTP) and thus, makes it one of the richest territories of the nation. The realistic and long-lasting socio-economic development can be achieved only through scientific and rational utilization of these natural resources. Therefore, appropriate developmental programs have to be designed through holistic approaches to ensure sustainable exploitation. The utilization of fishery resources, with very high exploitable potentials, coupled with the availability of suitable human resources has to get top priority while contemplating the strategies.
