The tuna catch of the mainland coast of India is chiefly contributed by incidental catches where as in Lakshadweep the effort is specifically directed on tunas. Pole and line and troll line are the principal gears employed for capture. Hand lines and drift gillnets are also rarely used. Agatti, Bitra, Suheli and Minicoy are the major pole and line fishing centres which together contribute 75% of the total tuna catch
