Abstract

Tunas constitute one of the economically important marine fisheries resources and during 1985-99, their production from Indian seas fluctuated between 24,287 t (1987) and 53,662 t (1992) with an annual average production of about 40,200 t forming 3.6% of the total pelagic fish production. The status of exploitation of coastal tunas occurring in the Indian seas in recent years has been dealt with elsewhere. The stock assessment of tunas occurring in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of India has been attempted at periodic intervals. After the published studies based on data during the period 1984-88, considerable changes in the trend of production were recorded since 1989, making it imperative to carry out a reexamination of the population parameters, status of exploitation and stock assessment of tunas from the Indian seas.
