With the long coast line along the mainland itself besides the rich areas surrounding the Andaman Nicobar Islands and the Laccadive Archipelago, with the fairly wide continental shelf and slope and with the expansive high seas extending beyond, India has rich marine fishery resources, chiefly constituted by varied species of fishes and crustaceans. There are also ample ancillary resources like the utilizable molluscs, corals, sponges, echinoderms and seaweeds. The marine fish production of India is about 40 per cent of the total of slightly over 2 million metric tons, coming from all the countries bordering the Indian Ocean.
