Potential yield from Indian EEZ

Srinath, M and Balan, K (2003) Potential yield from Indian EEZ. In: Status of Exploited Marine Fishery Resources of India. Mohan Joseph, M and Jayaprakash, A A,(eds.) CMFRI, Cochin, pp. 286-290. ISBN 81-901219-3-6



The Working Group constituted in the year 2000 by the Government of India for revalidating the potential of marine fishery resources of the country’s Exclusive Economic Zone estimated the potential yield as 3.93 million tonnes obtainable annually from the EEZ including 2.05 lakh tonnes of bivalves and gastropods and 1.01 lakh tonnes of deep-sea finfish and crustacean resources not indicated in the earlier revalidation done in the year 1991. The Working Group has observed that the bulk of additional harvestable yield is expected from the demersal resources from the shelf area such as large species of perches, deepsea and oceanic squids and the tunas and allied species from the EEZ. These resources could be effectively tapped employing fishing techniques such as traps and Potential Yield from Indian EEZ.
