Abstract

The research article outlines Pakistan's fisheries industry output from 1950 to the
recent past and fishery product trading from 1980 to 2011. Based on economic research, the findings
show that fish output and export continuously rose year after year. Despite this, the pace of
development in fish output over the previous two decades has been quite modest compared to other
emerging nations. The research also shows that inland aquaculture output in Pakistan is quickly
outpacing marine aquaculture. On the contrary, no marine aquaculture methods exist or are supported
to improve fish output. The article discusses and measures for fisheries sector security and future
development potential for coastal and non-coastal regions. In Pakistan, aquaculture has emerged as the
most promising option to address fish demand, food security, livelihood, employment, and national
GDP. Furthermore, it is critical to focus on marine aquaculture to restore marine fishing resources,
which may generate livelihoods in coastal communities. Finally, the main idea of this article is to
provide developmental techniques for authorities to grow and expand the aquaculture industry, which
might provide numerous options for livelihood support in Pakistan. The research uses methodological
triangulation for evaluating the on ground reality on a broader perspective and also an online survey
will be presented in it to evaluate the output of fish industry of Pakistan.
