India has a long coast line of nearly 6,000 km with the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the Laccadive Archipelago lying beyond her shores. The geographical position of India with the peninsular portion extending deep into the central part of the Indian Ocean gives her a locational advantage in marine fishing activities. At present though India contributes about 4096 of the fish landings of the Indian Ocean, when viewed against the world production of 76 million tannes oJ marine fish, her share is only 1.6 million tonnes represent ing less than 2%.
