Abstract

The tuna fishery of the Lakshadweep in the southeastern Arabian Sea is often overemphasized to the extent to create an impression that there is no other exploitable resources of fishes other than tunas, especially the skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis. The highly productive waters around the islands (numbering twenty seven), the submerged banks and the crevices of coral boulders and reefs offer ideal habitats for a large number of economically important groups of fishes, which offers scope for extensive fishing by simple crafts and gears.
