Abstract or Summary
  • The demand for fish and fish products is on the rise and being sought as a preferred alternative to other animal protein, owing to its taste, preference and proven health benefits. However the consumers’ urge in knowing the fish origin and its quality are decisive factors for determining its saleability. Numerous management and  policy initiatives  like IUU fishing and “Marine Stewardship Council” are means and measures to trace the fish’s origins and ensuring quality.  The fish production in India during 2013-14 was ten million tonnes; with a growing market with and outside the country due to increased purchasing power, thereby a distinct willingness to pay for premium quality fish. The climate change necessitates the global coordination in reducing carbon emission and setting emission standards which would provide a major incentive in the competitive global fish trade. Considering ocean to be a major carbon sink- this study attempts to create a blue carbon economy based on fishes caught in Indian waters. In this context a study was carried out to estimate the carbon emissions based on life cycle assessment; the differential carbon emissions across the chain during pre-harvest, harvest and post-harvest were computed. The study ascertains the amount of emission and provides scope for competitive advantage of Indian fish considering lower carbon emission. The study highlights the need for providing incentives for fishing operations which involves lower carbon emission. The study also suggests possible trade-offs and aims at developing scenarios across the different chain in reducing carbon emission for the future.
