    Abstract

    In recent years there has been an increasing awareness of the role and benefits of scientific fish farming in coastal waters for augmenting fish production of India, although a traditional practice of aquaculture has been prevailing in these waters for a long time. A comprehensive knowledge of the ecology of the different culture systems forms an integral part of the scientific farming because it directly influences the rate of production. The growth and survival of the organisms used for culture depend largely on the overall productivity of the pond, which in turn, is influenced by the various environmental characteristics of the water and the fertility of the pond soil. In short, the water and soil conditions to a great extent determine the success or failure of the culture operation. Further, the information on the various environmental characteristics of the pond water and soil, availability of essential elements and the rate of organic productivity, would not only help to adopt successful management principles and culture techniques but also to manipulate the ecosystem providing the necessary inputs for obtaining better production. Besides providing an overall picture of the productivity of the ponds, studies on soils furnish information on the inputs to enhance the fertility of soils and also help in selection of suitable sites for construction of farms.
