Abstract

The Indian fisheries sector contributes to the nutritional security, income, employment, foreign exchange earnings and livelihood opportunities. Over the years, the sector evolved from a modest, traditional and sustenance level to a sophisticated and modern industrial enterprise, thanks to government initiatives and policies, several innovations made by the scientific community, support by the private industry and companies, fishermen, farmers, NGOs and self help groups. The country now occupies the third position in total world production and the second place in inland fish production. The resources, in terms of water bodies, species, infrastructure and technical manpower are enormous and have been harnessed to great extent. However, many inadequacies have been felt in many areas which need to be addressed, if the sector has to progress.
