Opines that fisheries is a powerful income and employment generator in India as it stimulates the growth of a number of subsidiary industries. It is also source of cheap and nutritious food besides being a valuable foreign exchange earner. Information is a very important constituent for education, extension, research and development in fisheries sector. Suggests that a Fisheries Information System (FIS) which should generate, collect, organize and disseminate fisheries research information to teachers, scientists and students as well as technical and marketing information to managers, fishermen and other stakeholders to take maximum advantage of the emerging world’s trade regime is to be considered a priority item in fisheries development. Evaluates the resources, facilities and services of information units of fisheries related organizations in the region and puts forward suggestions for establishing an FIS and resource sharing network to extract maximum utility of the information resources available in the sector.
