    There are myriad laws and regulations that have some impact on marine fishing in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. Obviously, the most important is the MFRA. Increasingly, environmental laws are having a significant impact as are regulations by seafood importing nations and trade related instruments brought in by the WTO. A major central law is also in the making. The plethoras of laws (and agencies implementing them) also mean that there is considerable overlap and lack of coherence. There is no mechanism at the moment to ensure that they all converge towards a common understanding and vision for fisheries management. An important factor that cannot be ignored is that the large traditional fishing community has its own laws and independent system of management that has a huge influence on how constitutional laws get implemented.
