Abstract: Economic analysis of tuna fisheries of selected islands of Lakshadweep showed differential levels of profitability with maximum observed BC ration of 1.55 for Agatti followed by Kavaratti (1.38) and Minicoy Island (1.27 in 1/2 sharing system and 1.26 in 1/3 sharing system). On harvest side, major contribution to the fixed cost comes from interest on fixed capital ranging from minimum of 52.67% (Kavaratti) to maximum of 61.33% (Minicoy) owing to high initial investment. Among variable cost the percentage contribution of crew and non-crew manpower accounts to be 78%, 84.14% and 88.98% (89.08% in 1/3 share system) respectively in Kavaratti, Agatti and Minicoy emphasizes labour intensive nature of pole and line fishery in Lakshadweep.
