Caught in the 'Net'

This analysis of fish consumption patterns in coastal states and union territories in India over time is based on unit record data on fish consumption obtained from National Sample Surveys conducted in 1983 and 2011-12. Distributional aspects of fish consumption both within and across coastal states/union territories and over time are assessed. The results suggest that despite an increase in fish production over time, people living close to the coast in almost all states and union territories report a decline in consumption. This paper also explores the role of trade in explaining the wedge between production and consumption.
