` India, with its 5680 km of coastline and the continental shelf of about 5.8 million, has vast marine fishery resources (George, 1974). The average annual marine fish landings in India during the years 1962 – 1974 was 950427 tonnes (Silas et al, 1976). The pelagic fishery resources consisting of sardines and mackerel constitute about 60% of our fishery resources. The annual marine fish production in India for 1974 has been estimated to be 1.218 million tones. Prawns which form one of the important constituents of the demersal fishery play a unique role in the national economy as they earn foreign exchange of about 600 million rupees. The fishing industry employs nearly one million fishermen who are spread over in about 2000 villages. The fishing crafts of India, though largely conventional, numbers about 1, 00,000 of which about 10% are mechanized.
