Fishery Survey of India

Sudarsan, D (1987) Fishery Survey of India. In: Souvenir: National Symposium 40 years of research and development in marine fisheries in India, 16-18 September 1987, Kochi.



The fishery scene in India till the end of World War II was almost entirely artisanal both in the inland and marine sectors. Since then conscientious efforts have been made by the governments at the Centre as well as States for the development of the apparently large resources with which the country is endowed. Many major lines of development in marine fisheries were initiated in the late 1940s. One such was the setting up of the Deep Sea Fishing Station (DSFS) at Bombay in 1946 with the aim of augmenting food supply through development of deepsea fishing. This station, to start with, was conceived as an integrated fisheries project with facilities for fishing, fish preservation, fish marketing, cold storage, ice plant etc. The specific functions, however, were charting of fishing grounds and training of deepsea fishing personnel.
