Abstract or Summary
  • The Fish and fish products have emerged as the largest group in agricultural exports of India. The export of fish and fish products has jumped from a mere sum of US $ 10 million in 1960-61 to about US $ 1300 million in 2000-01. The export basket of fisheries sector has also diversified over time. Four decades ago it began with the export of shrimp only and now fisheries export basket consists of more than 60 items. Due to high importance of export of fisheries sector it is important to analyze its performance and factors affecting the same. There is concern about impact of WTO and trade liberalization measures on export performance and competitiveness and how the fisheries sector will respond to a free market economy and liberal trade regime. Still deeper is the concern as to the free trade regime will affect fisheries sector, particularly small and poverty-ridden fishermen. This paper discusses some of these issues. Specifically, the study examines the (i) temporal changes in the composition of exports and imports of fisheries products, (ii) magnitude of growth in exports of fishery products and determinants of fisheries export, (iii) comparative advantage of fishery products in international market and (iv) recent trade policy reforms in fisheries sector and their potential implications.
