The Department of Fisheries is an important productive sector under the Government of Kerala. This Department implements all the development and management programmes envisaged by the Government in the fisheries sector. As Kerala is blessed with an estimated marine fishery potential of a remarkable 5.17 lakh tonnes, the Department has unsurprisingly a major role to play in the economy of the State. In addition, the Department carries out a number of programmes and projects for the welfare of the fisher folk.
