Speaking at an International Conference ' Fisheries development in 2000 A.D.' (New Delhi, 1985) Dr. W. Philip Appleyard in a global context opined that the marine demersal catches could be increased from 22 million to 37 million tonnes ; the marine pelagic catches from 24 million to 50 million tonnes; tuna catches from around 3 million to at least 8 million tonnes and cephalopods from around 1 million to 10 million tonnes. A potential saving of post-harvest losses of 11 million tonnes may also be added to these to exceed 110 million tonnes of fishes needed by 2000 A.D.
