About two-thirds of the total marine fish catch comes from exploited pelagic fisheries. The three moa imDortant pelagic fisherie* are the oil sardine, mackerel and Bombay duck which together account f^r about 65 per cent of the yield from pelagic resources. The balance comes from other numerous nelaeic stocks which are being exploited at present. A critical assessment of each of the exploited pelagic resources has been made in this paper in order to estimate the probable magnitude of potential yields derivable from them.
