The total marine fish production in India during the financial year 1982-83 was estimated. Barring the states of West Bengal, Karnataka and Gujarat where there was a marked decline, the total marine fish production increased in all other maritime states of India. While the landings increased significantly in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Pondicherry, Kerala and Andamans there was only a marginal increase in Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Goa and Maharashtra. The pelagic group of species comprises wolf herring, oil sardine, other sardines, hilsashad, other shads, anchovies, other clupeoids, Bombay duck, half beaks, full beaks, flying fishes, ribbon fishes, carangids, mackerel, seer fishes, tunnies, bill fishes, baracudas, midlets and unicorn cod. Elasmobranchs, eels, catflshes, lizard fishes, perches, goat fishes, threadfins, croakers, silver bellies, big jawed jumper, pomfrets, flatfishes, prawns, lobsters, crabs, stomatopods and cephalopods form the demersal group.
