Conservation and regulation in marine fisheries

Silas, E G (1996) Conservation and regulation in marine fisheries. Proceedings of the Seminar on Fisheries - A Multibillion Dollar Industry, Madras, Aug 17-19, 1995 . pp. 173-179.



This seminar and exposition on FISHERIES A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR INDUSlRY is being held at a time when Marine Fisheries as well as Coastal Aquaculture for shrimp are passing through a difficult pbase on account of multifarious reasons. Some of the issues in Marine Fisheries are clouded by open conflicts and controversies while shrimp farming in coastal areas is hard hit by diseases and large-scale ecological and environmental implications. I shall be dealing here, with Marine Fisheries. The sharing of demersal and pelagic common property resources of the continental shelf waters has created in the recent past a considerable amount of tension, law and order conflicts among the traditional artisanal and mechanised fishing sectors. The last three years has seen a major shift in the conflict. An united effort of the traditional artisanal, motorised and mechanised fishing sectors visa-vis tbe so-called deep-sea fishing is called for. This has brought up many contentious issues.
