    Abstract

    India features regularly among the ten leading fish producing nations in the world. India has maintained the position of being the second largest fish producer in the world with a total production of 13.7 million tonnes in 2018-19 and 14.16 million tonnes in 2019-20. (Economic Survey 2021-22 and Handbook of Fisheries Statistics 2020) Further the sector has shown consistent growth in the total gross value added with one per cent GDP contribution, provides meaningful employment to 14 million people across the value chain in harvesting, processing, packaging, and distribution (Handbook of Fisheries Statistics 2020 and Shyam Salim 2020). Therefore, fisheries sector portrays a growth sector with potential for welfare distribution and inclusive development. Fish and fish products have emerged as the largest group in agricultural exports from India, with 1.39 million tonnes in terms of quantity and Rs. 57586.48 crore in value in 2021-22 against heavy odds of pandemic covid and economic slowdown (MPEDA 2021-22). This has constituted for around 10% of the total exports and 5.23% to the Agriculture GVA of the country, thus rightfully earning the title of being a “sunrise” sector (Rajeev and Bhandarkar 2022).
