Abstract: This study showed that capture fisheries productsion in Pakistan is decreasing with the passage of time. This might be due to the overexploitation as the capture of fish often goes beyond maximum sustainable yield (MSY) value of our existing resources. Moreover, low profit, lack of resources and improperly trained fishermen are the main factors which are responsible for the decreased capture fisheries production in Pakistan. Although there is an increasing trend in the export of fish, however, the rate is very low. Thus, the economic contribution of capture fisheries in Pakistan is gradually declining which must be controlled through effective measures.
