CMFRI, FRAD (1995) Marine fish landings in India during 1985-93. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 136 . pp. 1-28.



The period 1985-'93 witnessed significant improvement in the fish landings in almost all the maritime states, and the total marine fish landings in India crossed the level of potential yield of about 2.2 million tonnes from the currently fished grounds. Ring seine operations in the south west coast have brought about quantitalised leap in the landings of pelagic stocks, some of which recording all time high Icindings. Increased operations in mechanised sector, especially trawlers, considerably increased the catches of demersal stocks Among the maritime states, Kerala continues to occupy its premier position (best in the years 1989-'90). The highlight of the period is the emergence of Gujarat as an increasingly major contributor to the total landings, overtaking Maharashtra in respect of total landings since 1991.
