India ranks seventh in marine fish production. In this study; three objectives had been put forth that is to study Marine fish production with respect to inland fish production and export instability of marine fish after globalization, to study the per capita availability of marine fish in response to different factors in India and to study the probable market for marine fish after globalization. The data were collected from various publications like a Hand Book of fishery Statistics (2014), Manual on fishery Statistics (2012), World Review of Fisheries and Aquaculture (2014), etc. and Cudde Della Valle Index technique was used for analyzing the instability. After analysis of data, it was observed that marine fish production was more in 1991 and inland fish production was overtaking former due course of time. Domestic consumption of marine fish was also decreased down to 74 percent from 93 percent. In the part of instability the export value was showing medium instability in comparision to export volume of marine fish in between 1991–2011, but in between 2005 to 2014, both value and volume were showing medium instability. Here per capita, availability of the marine was dwelling between 7.34 to 5.87 kg. Marine fish export increased continuously in value whereas the volume of export marched at the same pace. The international market for marine fish export was showing the same degree of instability with its volume whereas remarkable changed has been observed in the value of export with its corresponding instability. Here the European Union is regarded as a best export destination for Indian marine fish.
