Seafood from India is increasingly in demand in far-flung markets of the world. Frozen and canned shrimps, frozen froglegs and lobsters and a host of other seafoods from India are finding favour with gourmets the world over.

Seafood export earned for the country foreign exchange worth over Rs 1245 million in 1975-76.
