Abstract

The food security problem in India has been alarming due to the rapid growth of population and the reduction of the per capita land. The current scientific, economic, environment and social trends are forcing farmers and policy makers to look for alternatives to fulfill the nutritional requirement for the growing population. Fish with an average of 18- 21 percent protein can be the best alternative in this context. Fisheries sector have been playing an important role in the national economy through improved food supply, employment and income. During 1998-99, fisheries sector contributed Rs.22,223 crores to the total Gross Domestic product (GOP), forming 1.4% of the total.
