Scombroids, an economically important fishery resource consisting of 15 genera and 49 species of tunas, billfishes, seerfishes and mackerel; are a dominant exploitable resource in the coastal as well as oceanic pelagic realm. Although the annual catchable potential of scombroids in the Indian EEZ is estimated to be around 758,000 t, the present yield is only about 300,000 t, worth more than Rs. 10 billion, and their demand in the domestic and export markets Is on the increase.
