Tunas constitute one of the important marine fisheries resources of our country contributing 1.5 to 2.0% of the total marine fish landings. The potential of this resource has been estimated to be 200 000 tonnes in the Indian EEZ. Popularly known as the 'chicken of the sea', tunas comprising of a number of species are exploited all along the Indian coasts.

Indian tuna fishery - production trend during yesteryears and scope for the future
Information collected from different sources suggested that longliners operating in Indian EEZ and adjacent international waters caught around 87,000 t of tune annually during 2006-'10; however, the evaluation of the fishery scenario indicated only limited scope for improving tuna production from certain areas of coastal waters; whereas enormous scope remain for increasing tunaProduction from the oceanic waters of EEZ.
