Assessment of Sea-cucumber resources of India

Alagaraja, K (1994) Assessment of Sea-cucumber resources of India. CMFRI Bulletin, 46 . pp. 32-33.



Holothurian resources are of great importance, because of their export potential. Due to their restricted distribution, it is feared that these resources are over-exploited and hence size restriction has been imposed on processed material exported. This has affected the beche-de-mer industry in India very much. The need for collecting basic data on catch, effort and biological details of these resources, in order to assess their resources potential, availability and level of exploitation for obtaining MSY, is emphasised.
