Status, prospects and management of pelagic fisheries in India

Pillai, N G K (2006) Status, prospects and management of pelagic fisheries in India. In: Proceedings of the International symposium on "Improved sustainability of fish production systems and appropriate technologies for utilization", 16-18 March, 2005, Cochin.



The annual pelagic fish production in India increased from 0.3 million t (mt) during 1950 to 1.4 mt in 2003 registering more than four fold increase. The potential yield from the pelagic resources of the EEZ is estimated to be 1.92 mt. During the last decade pelagic finfish resources contributed 46-56 % (average 51 %) of the total production. Almost 70 % of the production was obtained from within 50m depth zone.
