    Abstract

    Endowed with a long coastline of 8129 km, 2.02 million sq.km.of EEZ, and 0.5 million sq.km. of continental shelf and with an annual marine fishery potential of 3.93 million t, India occupies a unique position among the countries bordering the Indian Ocean. India is one of the leading nations in the world in marine fishery exports. From the traditional subsistence level, the Indian marine fisheries grew to an industrial status over a period of half a century since independence. The subsistence fisheries during the early 50's produced about 0.5 million tonnes annually. Currently, the total annual production is of the order of about 2.6 million tonnes. This increase is the result of improvements in the harvesting methods, increase in the fishing effort and extension of fishing into relatively deeper regions.
