I would like to contribute in terms of the post harvest losses happens in the field of fisheries especiallly in the countries like India where the existence of a multispecies fishery multiplies the possibility of food loss. Thia s is very important aspect to be studied as there is a surplus production of fish in India. The percapita consumption of fish in India is about 9.7 kg. The improvement is not taking place as the enhanced population growth as well as the accessibility of the commodity. The major chunk (80%) of the production will be eaten away by about 20% of the population and the wastage is also huge to the tune of 30-40% of the total production. Thus the facts should be more studied in this regard
