Till recently interaction between related oceanic fisheries activities in the Indian Ocean was not a matter of serious concern. The rapidly developing purse seine fishery in the Western Indian Ocean was a new element which by 1986 pointed to the need for studying and monitoring interactions with the established longline fishery, particularly for the yellowfin tuna. The available data indicates that the yield per recruit (Y /R) for yellowfin tuna will no result in any increase in the longline fisheries while there is scope for increase in the surface purse seine fisheries. The latter though harvesting larger quantities of skipjack tuna also depends to a large measure on juvenile and partly adult yellowfin catch.
