Perch fisheries in India - A critical analysis

Alagaraja, K and Andrews, Joseph and Pavithran, P P (1994) Perch fisheries in India - A critical analysis. CMFRI Bulletin-Perch fisheries in India, 47 . pp. 10-25.



Perches as a single group contribute substantially to the annual all India marine fish production. Due to various reasons there was a spurt in the production of perches from 1981 onwards. In this context an attempt is made to study the production of different groups of perches by the multi-gear system under operation in the Indian inshore coastal waters. Regionwise, Statewise, Gearwise, Groupwise, Quarterwise data were used for the present study. Maximum catchable potential of perches is arrived at 1.16 lakh tonnes by adopting Relative Response Model against the present all India annual average of 90,000 t.
