Abstract

Cephalopods are caught mainly as by-catch in the bottom trawl and due to the growing demand for cephalopods in the international market, they are exploited all along the Indian coast. In Maharashtra, cephalopods are mainly exploited by shrimp trawlers and stand second in the alll India production. The main fish landing centres for cephalopods at Mumbai are New Ferry Wharf (NFW) and Sassoon Docks. Cephalopods contribute 10.6% towards the total fish catch in Maharashtra (CMFRI, 2009)
