Fish and fisheries products figure prominently in the list of items on which QR has been removed . This raises alarm in the Fisheries Sector which provides employment to 7 million people directly and indirectly. The export eaming is 1/3 rd of the agricultural exports and to the tune of RS.6300 crores. The perception varies among the different clientele-like fishermen, exporters and consumers. Apprehensions of the farmer include crash in the fish prices under large-scale import raising livelihood questions.
