Tuna Fishery, Biology and Management is an effort to analyse the past data on climate variability, fishery and biology of tuna, consolidate and comprehensively present the status of the tuna fisheries under the major chapters: i) introduction, ii) taxonomy and distribution of tuna in the Indian Ocean, iii) fishing crafts and gears, iv) recent trends in world tuna production, v) tuna fisheries in the Indian Ocean, vi) tuna fisheries in the Indian EEZ, vii) climate variability and its effects on tuna production in the Indian Ocean, viii) post-harvest technology of exploited tuna resources, ix) tuna trade, x) tuna fisheries research and recent developments, xi) management of tuna fisheries and xii) suggestions and recommendations. The references and literature cited are listed at the end.

The contents of the book are primarily based on information culled from various reports on the subject, discussions with experts, stakeholders, tuna processers and exporters and field visits. An attempt has also been made to study the impact of the El Niño
Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon on the tuna production in the Indian Ocean. The gathered information is presented in a systematic manner to facilitate the readers/the end users interested in tuna and tuna fisheries and its development. Further this publication would facilitate evolution of suitable and relevant tuna fisheries management plan in the Indian perspective.
