Abstract

The Andaman and Nicobar group of Islands consists of 572 islands, islets and rocky out crops and have an aggregate coastline of 1,912 km, which is about a fourth of the coastline of India. The continenta l she lf area is very limited with an estimated area of 16,000 sq. km and the sea is very deep within a few ki lometers from the shore. The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) around the Islands encompasses around 0.6 sq. km, which is around 30% of the EEZ of India.
