Tuna

Fishery forms a pivotal part of Lakshadweep's economy. Tuna and similar fishes are estimated to be available at the quantity of around 1 lakh tonnes. Apparently, sharks can also be found in almost the same quantity in the sea around Lakshadweep. Tuna is the chief export item of Lakshadweep.

The tuna that has been caught freshly is usually made to get dried under the sun after it has been cooked and smoked. The product that comes out as the result of this process is called 'mas', which is then exported from Lakshadweep to the Southeast Asian countries.
