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. This has far reaching impact on the domestic prices of almost all varieties offish. The present analysis based on data from CMFRI and MPEDA intends to assess the trend in production and export trade of selected varieties of finfish, to compare the export and domestic market price structur3 and to evaluate the potentials of aquacvlture to maintain the domestic supplies and price stability.
