    Abstract

    Development of low cost cages, seed production techniques for high value finfishes and promotional activities by institutional agencies paved the way for wide spread adoption of cage farming in the coastal waters of Kerala. Cage farming offers tremendous scope for enhancing fish production in the state in the context of dwindling marine catches. The economic viability of cage farming in the coastal waters of Ernakulam District in Kerala state was analysed for enabling investment decisions at micro level. The micro level economic assessments enable macro level policy decisions for boosting fish production and income through promotion of cage farming activities. Financial viability analysis indicated internal rate of return of 21% for sea bass culture in Gothuruthu to 47% in Pizhala fishing village.
