Trips for recreational fishing make up a sizable portion of the tourism industry in many nations. The need for novel tourism products and the need to identify new revenue streams for fisheries in order to make them more profitable and sustainable can both be addressed by linking fisheries to tourism. This raises the question of whether India may be promoted as a destination for Fisheries-Based Ecotourism (FbE). The prospects for ecotourism in India have been investigated in various ways, but the viability of FbE in particular has not received enough attention. This study examines the idea of FbE in the context of India and considers potential effects on socioeconomic community life as well as the environment based on a survey of the literature and stakeholder interviews.
