Bibliography on Tunas

Pillai, N G K and Mallia, Jyothi V (2007) Bibliography on Tunas. CMFRI Special Publication, 92 . pp. 1-325.



Tunas, a very large and charismatic food fish with a wide distributional range, are valuable both in domestic and foreign markets and hence, play a vital role in the economies of many countries especially oceanic Islands. The oceanic waters adjoining the Asia-Pacific region contribute the bulk of the global tuna production. Although they constitute less than 5% of the world commercial catch by weight, they contribute much by dollar value (US $ 5.3 billion). Research and development efforts on tuna resources all over the world have contributed to a rapid growth of literature. The present bibliography is prepared to incorporate all the available publications including electronic references on this commercially important group, so that a large spectrum of researchers in this area would be benefited.
