Indian fisheries-An overall view

Panikkar, N K (1958) Indian fisheries-An overall view. In: Fisheries of the west coast of India, 1 October 1958, Calicut.



Our present sea fish production is of the order of 7-8 lakh tons per annum and it is estimated that another 3 lakh tons of fish are produced in inland waters, There is in addition a considerable amount of subsistence fishing. This production is high and places India among the first seven nations having annual production of over a million tons. This is, however, inadequate to meet the country's needs which may be roughly computed at about 40 lakh tons per annum. The national income from fisheries is estimated at about 60 crores of rupees per annum and overseas trade in fish and fish products secures for the country about 3-5 crores of rupees as foreign exchange.
