    Abstract

    Mariculture represents an immense opportunity for food production but remains a largely untapped farming activity. At present, the contribution of marine/coastal aquaculture production to the India’s production (2014) is around 10% (0.49 million tonnes), in which crustaceans, finfishes and molluscs contributes 0.386 (7.9%), 0.09 (1.84%) and 0.014 (0.29%) million tonnes (t) respectively. The major reason for the low production levels in this sector is that unlike the freshwater sector, the contribution by the finfish is meagre and mainly limited to shellfish such as shrimps and prawns.
