    Tunas are highly valued food fishes, targeted by neritic water fisheries and distant water fishing nations. Global tuna production has been estimated to be around 4.3 million tonnes (t) in 2005. The contribution by the Indian Ocean tuna fisheries was 22% of the total tuna production of 1.2 million t. The rapid expansion of the tuna fisheries in the world oceans, especially the long line fisheries (both ordinary and deep long lining), purse seine fisheries (both log-associated and free school) drift gillnetting (oceanic and neritic), longlining employing converted trawlers, pole and line fishery and sport fishery (angling) urgently necessitated a compendium on the present status of tuna fisheries in the global scenario. It is in this context that the book “Tuna-Fishery, Biology and Management” has been prepared by N.G.K. Pillai and P. Satheesh Kumar (222 pp) and published by CMFRI (2014).
