Coastal fishing#2

Fishing in India is a major industry in its coastal states, employing over 14 million people. The marine fish harvested in India consist of about 65 commercially important species/groups. Fishermen along India’s eastern coast are now using square mesh nets and practicing sustainable marine fishing. It is earning them higher incomes, protecting marine biodiversity and paving the way for policy change in one of the country’s most important fishing coastlines.
