Gujarat is one of the top five coastal states that witnessed the highest growth of fish production between 2004-05 and 2010-11, states an analysis done by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham).
"Gujarat's annual fish production currently stands at 8 lakh tonnes. In 2004-05, the production stood at 6.3 lakh tonne," said Bhagyesh Soneji, chairperson of Assocham Gujarat Council. The state currently accounts for 9 per cent of the country's total fish production of 91 lakh tonne.
The annual growth of fish production in the state (3.3%) is better than states like Kerala, Odisha, Maharashtra and Goa, between 2004-11. Only Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu have registered better growth rates than Gujarat, he said.
