    Indian fisheries sector plays an important role in socioeconomic development of the country in view of its potential contribution to national income, nutritional security, employment opportunities, social objectives, and export earnings. The fisheries sector has witnessed an impressive transformation from a traditional subsistence activity to a well developed, diversified commercial enterprise with vast untapped potential. Amidst this steady growth, there are issues of concern like the over exploitation of fisheries resources, sustainability, environmental degration, ecosystem management, provisions of WTO and pollution which necessiate the need for proper legislation and regulatory measures. It is in this context, policy interventions play a pivotal role in fisheries development. These assume greater significance in the wake of liberalization process presently on in the country. It is necessary to reorient and formulate the policies in fisheries sector to enhance the effectiveness of the sector and to compete at the global level.
