10 Best Sea Foods(Marine products) to Export From Kerala,India.

During my stay in Kenya after  understanding the fertile market possibilities of Kenya, i researched a lot about the best business that would work in Kenya for that time . I came up with this very idea of importing marine product to Kenya.  I had a chat with my friend Sruthi who is doing research in Fisheries(Doing masters in fisheries at Coimbatore ). She came up with a list of most important marine products suitable for export from Kerala. Due to some reasons i couldn’t make out my plan. Any way i thought about sharing the data which i collected for that purpose with you.
