Uttar Pradesh is India's most populous state with enough fisheries resources in the form of ponds, tanks with dominance of rivers and manmade reservoirs. Fish production in the state was only 325.95 thousand tones (2007- 08) and it is less than national average. In this study trend of fish seed production and fish production and also their inter relationship was analyzed. The time series analysis for period 1994-2008 reveals that fish seed production and fish production in the state is increasing over the years. The regression equation of fish seed production and fish production is established (Yest 0.275X-16.16; R2=0.971). This result clearly indicates a very good fit of the empherical data suggesting the fact that 97.1% of the variability in Fish production is explained by the seed production alone. A strong significant relation between two variables (r= 0.97) justifies the need of quality seed production for enhanced sustainable fish production.
