    With average annual marine fish landings of 3.6 lakh t during 2001-10, Maharashtra is one of the major fish producing states ranking 4th in the country. The annual marine fishery potential of the State in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is estimated at 6.5 lakh t (Ministry of Agriculture, 1993) while long term potential yield (LTPY) based on the maximum annual landings up to 90 m depth during 2001-2010 is estimated at 5.2 lakh t (CMFRI, 2010). The annual landings valued at about Rs 2,322 Crores contributed 0.5% to the GDP of the state. The marine fishery along the coast of Maharashtra is multi-species, supported by tropical species with relatively smaller size, fast growth, almost continuous breeding and low volume (biomass) nature with rapid turnovers.
