    A review is made in this report of the resources of India from which national can be derived in terms of employment, nutritional needs and increased fishermen's as well as showing the viability of canning with reasonable returns on investment. The seafood industry in India has recorded a phenomenal growth in the course of the last 15 years, due almost entirely to investment by the shrimp processing sector, most productI/qf which are exported. Export earnings registered an impressive growth f rom Rs. 37.5 crore- in 1962 to a record of Rs. 1 797.3 crore in 1977. This represents an increase of nearly 50 times the 1962 value in 15 years. Frozen shrimp has been the main contributing factor and in 1977 accounted for 72 percent of the quantity and 87 percent of the value of seafood exports.

    The description of the oceanographic conditions of the shelf waters off the southwest coast of India between Ratnagiri in the north and Tuticorin in the south for the period 1976-78 1s based on observations carried out along oceanographic sections located off Ratnagiri, Karwar, Kasaragod, Cochin, Quilon, Cape Comorin and Tuticorin. In accordance with the objectives of Phase II of the Project, more emphasis was given to improving our knowledge of the behavioural characteristics of the oil sardine and mackerel and also to evolving methodologies for fishery forecasting appropriate to Indian conditions. Hydrography/plankton/fishing surveys were conducted during the southwest monsoon to assess the intensity of upwelling and to establish possible correlations between the behaviour of commercially important pelagic fishes and the variations of environmental factors observed in space and time. Data related to the process of upwelling were collected mainly to evaluate the extent and intensity o f upwelling and also to verify the variations of certain physical parameters noted during the Phase I.
