Abstract

India is the largest country in the Indian Ocean region and is blessed with a long coast line and vast living resources in the seas. The need for increasing the protein-rich seafood production to cater to the needs of the rapidly increasing population has been and continues to be a serious concern for the government. Besides, the fact that the per capita fish consumption in India is around 3.5 kg is also a cause for serious concern in the context of reducing protein malnutrition and improving the health of the people of the country. The availability of resources in the vast seas around the country and the increasing demands for increasing production for domestic consumption as well as for export have lead the organisations concerned with research and development of marine fisheries, develop appropriate technologies
