Marine fisheries in India: The path ahead…..

Rao, G Syda (2011) Marine fisheries in India: The path ahead….. In: Ninth Indian Fisheries Forum, 19 -23 December 2011, Chennai.



The estimated landings from the marine capture fisheries from the peninsular region of the country (excepting Lakshadweep and Andaman and Nicobar isles) stands at 3.65 million tonnes (2009-10) with a quinquennial smoothed growth rate of 4.62%. In the past decade the inter-annual growth rate of landings have ranged from -10.7% to 12.8 %. The estimated harnessable marine resource potential of the Indian EEZ is 4.4 million tonnes at the present exploitation rates. The most liberal of the exploitation forecasts predicts that by 2030 the landings off Indian shores could reach upto 4.6 million tonnes. The trend based surveys have indicated that in the depth range upto 100 m, which contributes to about 86% of the total exploited resources, have practically no possibility of witnessing quantitative expansion of harvesting.
