James, P S B R and Pillai, P P (1993) Tuna fisheries and fishery in the Indian EEZ- An update. In: Proceedings of the national conference on tunas, 21-22 April,1989, Kochi.



The scenario of tuna fishery in the Indian EEZ in recent years show that it is still limited to the small scale fishery sector with little inputs from the industrial sector. The results obtained till date from the surveys carried out by the Government of India vessels (FSl and CIFNET) in the EEZ beyond the traditional fishing grounds, the industrial longline operations of foreign fleets in the Indian EEZ and contiguous high seas, the rapid increasing rate of skipjack and yellowfin tuna production in the traditional sectors of the neighbouring insular states such as Maldives and Sri Lanka and the fast pace of growth, expansion and production in the tuna purse seine fishery of foreign fleets of France, Spain, Panama and Ivory Coast in the tropical Western Indian Ocean area - all these have indicated tuna resource availability and rich tuna fishing grounds in our EEZ and contiguous high seas.
