Qasim, S Z (1986) Some projections of marine living resources in the year 2000 AD. In: Souvenir Issued on the occasion of the inauguration of the Permanent Building for the Headquarters of CMFRI ,March 1, 1986, 1 March 1986, Kochi.



In India, sea fish largely comes from the capture of natural fish populations from the coastal waters. In 1947, the marine fish production in India was 0.4 million tonnes and today it has reached 1.5 million tonnes. Although the increase has been significant, it has not really reached a spectacular figure. This is because our fishing effort has largely been confined to a narrow coastal zone. The estimates of potential fish yield from the Indian Ocean vary from 7 million to 17 million tonnes. Of this potential, India's contribution is expected to be 5-9 million tonnes. From the Indian Exclusive Economic Zone, the fish production is expected to be about 3 million tonnes. The projected fish requirements of India's population by the 2000 A.D. is expected to be 11.4 million tonnes.
