    The state of West Bengal lies between longitudes 85°50' N and 89°50'E and latitudes 21°38' E and 27°10'N, spreading into 19 districts in an area of 88,752 sq km. The State has a coastline of 150 km along its three coastal districts namely South Purba Midnapur, South 24 Parganas and North 24 Parganas. The continental shelf upto 200 m depth covers an area of 20,000 sq km (3.6% of the total area of the Indian continental shelf). The continental shelf of West Bengal is wide (about 150 km) and shallow. The bottom is muddy and its configuration is affected by the large river systems and tidal currents. As fish is an important part of diet of the population by tradition, demand for fish is very high in this state.
