Flnfish export from India is growing rapidly since 1991 92 and currently forms the single largest commodity in our seafood market. The major varieties exported are ribbon fish, pomfrets, seerfish, mackerel, reef cod and snappers. The total quantity of all finfishes exported during 1995-96 is to the tune of 1 lakh tonnes fetching a revenue of Rs.372 crores.
