    Aquaculture was practiced in several coastal areas of the world by simple methods such as collecting seed from naturally abundant areas growing them to harvestable size in coastal ponds. Simple supplementary feed using locally available natural resources wereused and the production rates were moderate. The aqua farmers were satisfied since investments were low, mass mortalities of stocked resources were rare and there was moderate profit. These traditional systems in Asia especially in China and Vietnam have been productive for more than 3000 years.These eco-friendly aquaculture practices like paddy cum fish culture have benefitted several millions of rural people in Asia and have been designated as a “Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System”.
