Abstract

Shrimp are caught along most of the 6000 km long coastline of India. Total catches expanded rapidly between 1965 and 1973, but since then catches have fluctuated, and most recent catches have been below the peak of 220000 tons in 1975. A number of different species are caught, with a variety of gears, including trawlers in the offshore grounds, and several types of traditional gear in the inshore and lagoon areas
