Yohannan, T M and Pillai, P P and Koya, K P Said (1993) Fishery, biology and stock assessment of skipjack tuna in Indian seas. In: Tuna research in India. Fishery Survey of India, Bombay, pp. 77-95.
In India the oceanic skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis (Linnaeus) forms a significant fishery only in Lakshadweep islands. Here itself the catch is only an insignificant component in the lotal annual catch of this species from western Indian Ocean. The infrastructural facilities now available in these islands are insufficient to expect any major improvement in its fishery. As this group of islands arc increasingly coming to focus in the national context with a view for further devlopment, the fisheries sector will have to get its due importance.
