Cage fish farmers across the coastal districts of Kerala suffered massive losses in the floods of August, 2018. The flooding and crop loss was also a setback to efforts of ICAR-CMFRI to popularize cage fish farming. The flood waters which completely washed many cages along with the cultured fishes meant loss was in terms of cage structure and nets, harvest ready fishes and juvenile fishes stocked for new cropping in cages. Around eight species of fish were being farmed in cages including the Asian seabass, pearl spot, red snapper, Caranx sp. and tilapia.
