    Dr. A. A. Jayaprakash joined the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute in 1969, spending the next 4 decades in researching demersal and pelagic fisheries, before retiring as a Principal scientist in 2007. In addition to his duties as a scientiest, he was, at different times, in charge of the museum, field laboratory and library at CMFRI; editor of the Annual Report of the Institute on three occasions and editor of the Journal of the Marine Biological association for 8 years. In between these various responsibilities, he also found time to create the caricatures which feature on the following pages. Featuring mostly fish as protagonists, these caricatures capture the artist's thoughts on a wide array of topics ranging from climate change to space exploration to natural disasters and rampant consumerism. They offer a glimpse into the world of a fisheries scientist and also the world as glimpsed by a fisheries scientist.
