Abstract

As the coa.tal marine fish production faces challenging problems with regard to the sustainability. resources conservation and management there is an imperative need to find ways and means to rationally manage the coastal resource exploitation as well as to exploit the potentially hitherto under exploited or unexploited non conventional resources from the distant waters of the Indian EEZ. The exploratory surveys conducted so far brought out a base line picture on the fishery potentials in the deeper waters and charted the extent of productive fishing grounds, fish concentration pockets and distribution and abundance in space and time. The paper throws more light on the management of epi, meso and bathy pelagic resources, and their possible exploitation strategies by various pelagic1 or midwater and deepwater trawling high seas drift netting and longlining. The abundant occurrence of potentially rich myctophid and gonostomatids in the DSL and their role in the oceanic food chain. forage of major pelagics and their possible utilisation as food tishes have also been discussed in this paper and emphasized suitable management options for economic exploitation and utilisation.
