Silas, E G (1977) Indian fisheries 1947 - 1977. Technical Report. CMFRI, Kochi.



The development of fisheries of the Indian Ocean and of the countries bordering it received focussed attention only in recent years. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations started evincing direct interest in the development of fisheries of this region with the formation of the 'Indian Ocean Fishery Commission' in 1967, under Article VI of the FAO Constitution. The objectives of this Commission are "to promote, assist and co-ordinate national programmes over the entire field of fishery development and conservation; to promote research and development activities in the area through international sources, and in particular international aid programmes; to examine management problems with particular reference, because of the need to take urgent action, to those relating to the management of offshore resources". Several subsidiary bodies of the Commission including the regional "Indian Ocean Programme" are operating at present to help the countries in different fields of fisheries and their development without either overinvestment or over-exploitation.
