    Abstract

    The future development of aquaculture depends on adoption of new and innovative production technologies,management and utilisation of less utilised water resources and proper market tie-ups. In spite of having many estuaries, backwaters, mudflats etc., in Karnataka,brackish water fish culture has not been practised till 2009.Marine fish production was mainly through fishing and during the lean months these fishers generally did not have any other income generating occupation. Keeping these facts in mind the team of Scientists at Mangalore Research Centre of CMFRI designed rectangular cages suitable for mariculture of commercially important finfishes such as red snappers and sea bass in the estuarine areas of Karnataka.
