Abstract: Marine biodiversity conservation in India is in its infancy. Many factors can be attributed to this major cause; a lack of attention at the national policy level (including the lack of marine conservation policy), lack of an enforcement mechanism, lack of financial and human resources, self-defeating mandates of various departments, and large scale development interests of power and port infrastructure. Ever expandng economic aspirations leading to large scale coastal infrastructure development are bound to have their own ecological footprint, resulting in severe consequences both for coastal and marine biodiversity and for coastal communities. This paper draws attention to some key gap areas in the field of marine biodiversity conservation in India.
