India being a republic with the essence of federal principles encapsulated in its constitution has vested very important responsibilities and power with its 28 states and 6 union territories. According to the constitution the state legislatures have the power to make laws and regulations with respect to a number of subject matters including water, land, fisheries as well as the preservation, protection and improvement of stock and the prevention of animal disease. As regards the implementation of strictures and regulations on mattered concerned with the natural resources like fish the three major branches of the nation play equally important roles. They are the legislative, judicial and executive branches, which have been clearly envisaged under the constitution.
