Elasmobranch resource, comprised of sharks, skates and rays, has assumed commercial importance in India only recently. During the past 40 years the average annual landing of the resource was 53,546 tonnes, which constituted 2.5% to the total marine fish production of the country. But in the past decade, because of increasing demand for shark’s fins in the southeast Asian countries, the catch is showing progressive trend reaching a maximum of 75,623 t in 1998.
