    Abstract

    Mangroves are unique ecosystems which provide food, fodder and a host of other products to the coastal populations in tropical and subtropical areas. They help in preventing natural calamities such as large scale soil erosion and floods. Mangroves characterise an ecosystem where both terrestrial and aquatic fauna interact and strike a perfect balance. Due to the presence of high organic matter these areas act as important nursery grounds for a number of finfishes and shellfishes. The export of nutrients and rich detrital load from mangroves to adjoining areas such as estuaries makes these locations also important in the context of fishery. Mangroves are also important from the view of aquaculture. These areas with suitable modifications can be converted into culture ponds with high rate of production.
