    India is one of the largest fish producers in the world and contributes 5.43% to global fish production. India ranks second in fish production from aquaculture sector following China at top. Total fish production of India during 2010-11 was 8.42 million metric tones. Inland sector contributes about 5.2 million metric tones, whereas marine sector contributes 3.22 million metric tones. India has a long coastline of about 8,129 km and continental shelf area of 0.5 million km2. Declining catch rates in marine capture fisheries consequently created serious unemployment issues in rural coastal areas. Issues faced by marine fisheries sector in India have focused the attention of policy makers and rural fishers towards development of mariculture and coastal aquaculture activities as alternative livelihood option.
