    Large pelagic fishery resources contributed about 4% of total marine fish landing in Gujarat. Tunas dominated among LP resources, followed by seerfishes, queenfish and dolphinfish. They are targeted by mechanized gillnetters and the multiday trawlers with region between Veraval and Porbander as the major fishing zones. Mainly limited to the shelf areas within 200 m depth, the operations extended to oceanic areas beyond 200m during summer months. Poor handling and onboard storage effect the quality of the fishes and market value realised by the fishers. Mainly dried products of LP are traded within the country as well as abroad like Sri Lanka, Tunisia and Thailand.
