Abstract

Maharashtra with a coastline of 720 km has a shelf area of about 90,000 sq.km. The EEZ confers an additional 20,000 sq.km approximately for exploitation. At present only 30% of the shelf area upto a depth of about 50 m is intensively exploited. The strategy to boost marine fish production in Maharashtra will be to increase production from the currently exploited groimds through increased effort in a phased manner, effective utilisation of the EEZ resources through offshore fishing, improvement of infrastructure facilities such as berthing, cold storage, etc.
