    Abstract

    The emerging seaweed farming industry in the country will get a major boost, with the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) transferring its technology of seaweed cultivation to the Andamans administration. CMFRI provided scientific inputs on methods of seaweed farming suitable to the Islands, as a part of the institute’s initiative for intensifying its consultancy services. The seaweed cultivation is generally perceived as one of the most environmentally benign types of mariculture activity. A feasibility study conducted in the seawater-inundated areas in South Andamans by a team of CMFRI scientists revealed that these regions are highly prospective for seaweed farming. Aimed at avoiding environmental disruptions, CMFRI selected the coastal areas devoid of coral reefs. As part of transferring the technology, CMFRI provided practical training on methods of the farming practices to the fisheries department in Andamans.
