Abstract

Karnataka, on the West coast, plays an important role in the fisheries development of India and has a prominent place in the country's fisheries map, It has a shelf area of 25000 Sq. Km. and a coastline of 270 Km, about 1/22 of the country's coastline. The State's contribution to the total marine fish production in the country is of the order of ^.0%. The State has two coastal districts, namely Dakshin Kannada and Uttar Kannada. The lengths of coastline of both the districts are almost the same. Many rivers such as the Nethravathi, the Saravathi and the Kali flow into the Arabian sea and render the inshore area rich in nutrients.
