    Abstract

    The economic and financial feasibility indicators are crucial in the successful adoption of any new technology. The gross income obtained from an enterprise can be maximized either by reducing the costs of inputs or by increasing the revenue.The initial investment cost on cage structure, operating cost components such as feed, seed, labour as well as consistent production and prices decides the economic viability of cage farming. The initial investment on a 15 meter diameter cage was Rs. 8 lakhs and that of 6m diameter was Rs. 4 lakh during the experimental trials. With further research interventions and participatory methods, the size and cost of the cages were further reduced to suit various locations as wellas brackish water areas in the country.
