Management of marine fisheries of India

James, P S B R (1988) Management of marine fisheries of India. In: The First Indian Fisheries Forum, Proceedings, 4-8 December; 1987, Mangalore.



Marine fishing in the country is carried out by non-mechanised and mechanised boats employing wide variety of fishing gears. Over the years, a number of changes have taken place in the fishing methods, crafts and gears. The resources have also been behaving in a different manner. These changes in the patterns of fishing and resources availability and associated socio-economic problems are briefly highlighted. The intense mechanised fishing operations, especially trawling in coastal waters and to some extent purse-seining are causing alarm in some quarters for some resources. Management measures needed in such situations have been outlined.
