    In India, the resources available for mariculture/coastal aquaculture is vast and it includes 8129 km of coastline, 2.2 million km2 of Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) with 0.5 million km2 of continental shelf area, 1.2 million ha of coastal salt affected land and 3.9 million ha of estuarine area. In spite of having huge mariculture resources, lndia is still at the initial stage in mariculture.The coastal aquaculture scenario continues to be dominated by shrimp farming with single species. Presently, shrimp culture in lndia is in doldrums, due to the frequent failures of the crop. Adopting crop rotation or diversification using finfishes, to some extent would solve the issue of diseases in shrimp industry. One of the vital prerequisites for crop rotation or diversification is the availability of seed production technology for selected high value finfish. lndian pompano is a suitable species for crop rotation, since the shrimp pond could be used as such for the culture of the species without further modifications
