Abstract

We are yet to have legislative approval of a National Fisheries Policy, which has been incubating for long. In effect, we still go by the Indian Fisheries Act of 1896! So also the passage of an Aquaculture Bill in the Parliament. The existing Marine Fishing Regulation Acts and other Instruments in vogue lack adequacy especially in the light ofthe sea change that is taking place in marine fisheries and coastal aquaculture. Governance of fisheries is in many hands, with several Central and State Ministries involved, but without proper linkages and coordination. Organisational imbalances lead to subjectivity and lop sided decisions. There is a priority for setting it right without which many ofthe maladies will continue to plague us.
