Abstract

The country with a long coastline of 8118 KM has an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) extending to 2.02 million Sq.Km., 0.86 million Sq.Km. on the west coast, 0.56 million Sq.Krn on the east coast and 0.60 million Sq.Km. around the Andaman and Nicobar Islands - which is highly suitable for developing captive and culture fisheries. With the absolute right on the EEZ, India has also acquired the responsibility to conserve, develop and optimally exploit the living marine resources within this area. Inland fishery resources are vast and comprises of rivers and canals (171 334 KM), reservoirs (3.0 million hectare), ponds and tanks (2.36 million hectare), floodplain lakes and derelict waters (1.07 million hectare) and brackish water areas (1.42 million hectare). The marine fishery resources in Indian EEZ have been estimated at about 3.934 million tones, constituting 51 per cent demersal, 43 per cent pelagic and 6 per cent.Against this background, the study has been taken to asses the perceptions towards development of fisher folk community in Prakasam District of Andhra Pradesh
