The CMFRI report says the country recorded 3.56 million tonnes in total landings from across the coasts during 2019, with Tamil Nadu grabbing the first position in the landings with 7.75 lakh tonnes. It was followed by Gujarat with 7.49 lakh tonnes and Kerala came at the third position with 5.44 lakh tonnes.

A highlight of the report was a commercially unimportant fish - redtoothed triggerfish - which became the most landed resource of 2.74 lakh tonnes.
