Abstract

Lakshadweep and Andaman & Nicobar Islands, the two Union Territories situated in the Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal respectively, are strategically important to India in many ways. With regard to the marine fisheries in these territories, there is a vast scope to improve, enlarge and intensify the activities in order to reap a good harvest in a sustainable manner. In this volume an account on the status of marine fisheries of Lakshadweep is dealt with first, followed by the account on Andaman and Nicobar Islands, hereafter referred to as Andamans. In the Numbers concerned with the other maritime states of India, the data on census of marine fishermen population, craft and tackle etc. and on the exploited marine fishery resources have been collected, processed and analysed by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Cochin. Whereas, for these two Island territories the data have been obtained from the respective Fisheries Directorates. For the exploited marine fishery resources data for the ten year period 1875-84 have been considered.
