    Puducherry Union Territory has 45 km of coast which extends from Kanagachettykulam in the north to Murthykuppam in the south and contributes around 5% to the total marine fish catch of the country. The average annual catch was 15,492 t during 2005 – 2009. One of the most significant development in the marine fisheries sector observed in recent years is the large scale introduction of ringseine boats for commercial exploitation of pelagic fish resources, which is also observed along the coast off Puducherry.
