Capture Fisheries

Capture fishery refers to the biological stock of fish species in the natural marine habitat of the world. Fish harvesting from capture fishery sources constitutes the lion’s share of fish supply in the world. However, the volume of fish production from this crucial natural source has been declining since the 1980s due to decline of fertility, overfishing, IUU fishing, by-catch and inadequate legislations and management systems. Despite struggle over revival of capture fishery in different fishing areas of the world, the potential of this sector for growth of blue economy continues to assume importance among the coastal nations.
