Jones, S (1969) Marine fishery resources of India. Indian Farming, 19 (9). pp. 19-21.



With the long coast line along the mainland itself besides the rich areas surrounding the AndamanNicobar Islands and the Laccadive Archipelago, with the fairly wide continental shelf and slope and with the expansive high seas extending beyond, India has rich marine fishery resources, chiefly constituted by varied species of fishes and crustaceans. There arc also ample ancillary resources like the utilizable mdluscs, corals, sponges, echinoderms and seaweeds. The marine fish production of India is about 4o per cent of the total of slightly over 2 million metric tons, coming from all the countries bordering the Indian Ocean.
