The Lakshadweep sea is estimated to have an annual fishery potential of about 90,000 tonnes while the present yield is only about 6000 tonnes. ' Endowed with vast lagoons and tuna-rich oceanic waters, I fishing is an important component of the economy of Lakshadweep. Tunas form 87% of the fishery and is caught mainly by the pole-and-line technique-:-This method involves locating the tuna shoals, then attracting by chumming with live bait and water spraying, and finally, catching the fish using poles and lines with barbless hooks .
