James, P S B R (1992) CMFRI Bulletin No. 45: Monsoon fisheries of the west coast of India - an Introduction. CMFRI Bulletin, 45. pp. 1-3.
The Asian summer monsoon, heralded in ballards, history and literature and eulogised by poets, is synonymous with the prosperity of the countries in South and East Asia. A bountiful rainfall in the region, where more than 60% of the world's population inhabit, favours high vegetative and animal production, influences the life and social pattern of the people, their fortunes and in turn, the economy of the Nation. Failure of the monsoon rains in any part of the area would adversely affect the land-based production, causes miseries and often with disastrous consequences. Naturally this unique phenomenon which brings either the boon or the bane, has attracted the attention of the people from all walks of life over the centuries.
