Studies on tuna livebait fishes of Lakshadweep

Nasser, A K V (1993) Studies on tuna livebait fishes of Lakshadweep. PhD thesis, Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. Submitted to Cochin University of Science and Technology.



Oceanic species of tuna are being exploited by pole-and-line fishing using livebait and contribute to commercial fishery in Lakshadweep from September to April. In seventies the 'odies' (traditional craft) were completely replaced by mechanised boats fitted with bait tanks and since then tuna catch has increased considerably. The Lakshadweep Sea is estimated to have an annual fishery potential of 50,000 tonnes while the present yield is only about 7,000 tonnes a year
