Abstract

The most outstanding development that has taken place during the past decade in India's fishing industry is the phenomenal increase of prawn export brought about chiefly by the introduction of modern processing methods. The insatiable demand for prawns from the United States and other foreign countries has been the incentive for most of the entrepreneurs to establish up-to-date processing plants for packing prawns. As a direct consequence of the high demand for raw material and due to the timely help and advice rendered by the various research and other organisations of the Government of India, a number of mechanised fishing vessels were introduced into the capture fisheries for prawns. While these developments had their effect in the fishing industry all over the country it is to be admitted that maximum development has taken place in the south-west coast of India from where more than 80% of the exportable varieties of prawn are now being landed.
