Abstract

The fisheries sector plays a pivotal role in global economics through generation of wealth and employment potential for an ever-increasing population. This sector in India contributes significantly towards the above human needs with an annual turn over of abov e Rs.220 billion forming 1.4% of the total GDP and 4.6% of agricultural GDP. This book is an outcome of a joint venture by two experts, Drs.N.G.K. Pillai and Pradeep K. Katiha from marine and inland sectors respectively. The authors took all efforts to cull out relevant information published over the last 65 years on capture and culture fisheries of inland/marine habitats. This book is recommeded to fishery students and college/university libraries where fisheries form part of the carriculam as a reference guide.
