Abstract

The rapid survey carried out at selected centres in the Union Territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands during January-April 1978 was a base-line study to imderstand the potential of the islands for development of mariculture. Mariculture is assuming greater im portance for increasing sea-food production and pro- viding employment opportunities on the mainland of India and, to extend this development to the island territory, basic data on the species resources and environ mental conditions are essential. The present survey, though indicative in nature, is the first to be made in that region with this specific objective and has thrown some light on its mariculture potential.
