The 990 km long coastline of Pakistan is particularly rich in marine resources, as a result of the River Indus’ extensive stream system and shallow subtidal zones, which are perfect for the development of fishery resources.
Although there are more than 1,500 different varieties of fish and shellfish along the Pakistani coast, only roughly 200 species are gathered for commerce. Crab, lobster, squid, cuttlefish, and mollusks are significant among other shellfish. Many different types of fish, including sardines, croakers, snappers, pomfrets, sharks, catfish, barracudas, river shad, and eels, are captured when fishing for finfish.
