Introduction: The Eastern Indian Ocean (Figure B9.1) covers 29.88 million km? including the Bay of Bengal in the north, the Andaman Sea and northern part of the Malacca Straits in the east, and the waters around the west and south of Australia. The main shelf areas include those of the Bay of Bengal and the Gulf of Martaban and the narrower shelf areas on the western and southern sides of Indonesia and Australia for a total of 2.37 million km? of shelf area. The main fisheries are coastal and they are concentrated in these shelf areas. The resources range from typical tropical species found in the northern part of the area to temperate species in the waters of the southern latitudes west and south of Australia. The high seas resources, especially tuna, have been mostly exploited by the distant-water fishing fleets from Japan, the Republic of Korea and Taiwan Province of China. The French and Spanish fleets started fishing in the region in 1997 and their catches are smaller than those of the Japanese and Taiwanese fleets.
