Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 13 . pp. 1-10.



Tuna is one of the least exploited resources of the Indian seas accounting for 0.98 % of the total marine fish catch of India at the 1978 level. On the other hand tuna resources have been exploited by countries such as Japan, Korea and Taiwan from the Indian Ocean. Relevant portions of the recommendations of the 'Symposium on scombroid fishes' held at Mandapam camp. The authorities involved with the planning of the Indian Ocean Expedition give due consideration to gathering and collating the information which should be useful in aiding the development of high seas fisheries for scombroid fishes in the Indian Ocean. In the context of these developments and the need for efficient utilisation of the resources of the Exclusive Economic Zone, a brief account on the trend in the tuna fisheries in the country is presented here.
