Chapters The tentative chapter plan of the report would be as follows: Introduction Trends in Seafood Trade in India Export Trends of marine products RCA and dRCA Trends Trade partners Regional Hirschman Regional Orientation Competitive Index Seafood Trade on a global level Effects of Tariffs. Subsidies and Trade Agreements Government Initiatives Value Chain Problems and Issues Recommendations Conclusion .
