The seventh plan envisages an export target of Rs. 1000 crores from the fisheries sector. For Attaining this target the emphasis appears to be on exploitation from fishing grounds away from the Conventional/traditional grounds beyond the 30 fm line. These fishing ground can be fished only by Bigger trawlers, purse seiners and shrimpers which have the facility to remain at sea for a fortnight or More. Our experience has shown that the shrimp component from offshore grounds is negligible, less Than &%.
