From time immemorial the oceans are considered a 'treasure house' for mankind. Resources which are conventionalIy exploited from our seas may be classified under two groups, the living and the non-living. Fishes, prawns, crabs, lobsters, mussels, oysters, clams, cuttle fishes, squids and a few seaweeds fall under the former category whereas items such as petrol, cooking gas and salt come under the latter. Only the living resources which have food value are enlisted in all global fishery assessment.
