Mohamed, K.S. and Muthiah, C. and Zacharia, P.U. and Sukumaran, K.K. and Rohit, P. and Krishnakumar, P.K. (1998) Marine fisheries of Karnataka State, India. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 21(2), pp. 10-15.
This contribution provides an overview of the marine capture fisheries off the coast of Karnataka State, India. It covers the main fisheries and fishing gears, production trends (by main species /groups and gears), assessment results and fisheries management. Marine fisheries production in the State increased from about 57,000 t/year during the 1950s to a peak of about 250,000 in 1989, declining to about 150,000 t/year by 1995. Substantive changes have been noted in dominant gears and species groups contributing to the catch between 1980-84 and 1990-95. Results of assessments indicate that many commercially important stocks are overfished, thus requiring a reduction in fishing effort.
