James, P S B R and Kumaran, M and Pillai, C S G and Lal Mohan, R S (1989) Development of fisheries in Lakshadweep recommendations. CMFRI Bulletin Marine living resources of the union territory of Lakshadweep An Indicative Survey With Suggestions For Development, 43 . pp. 253-256.



Investigations conducted by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute have indicated the possibilities of exploitation of the potential marine resources especially tunas and other commercially important fishes around Lakshadweep. Realising the need for the increased exploitation of the marine fishery resources, emphasis has been given to the biology and assessment of the resources of tunas, fishery and biology of tuna live-bait fishes and the environmental factors affecting their distribution and abundance. Of the various developmental schemes proposed to be implemented in Lakshadweep in recent years, exploitation of fishery resources has. been given considerable importance by researchers and planners alike. As the land area being limited, the scope for the development of land based industries is very meagre and hence any major development programme envisaged has to be centred on the exploitation of marine fish resources.
