    The ICAR-Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) is a premier research institute involved in marine fisheries and mariculture research in the past several decades. The institute has been instrumental in developing noteworthy technologies and policies aimed at augmenting fish production and livelihoods of coastal fisherfolk in the country. In view of the declining catches from the marine capture fisheries, the enormous potential of mariculture need to be tapped for achieving the blue revolution targets. CMFRI has made significant strides in developing and popularising mariculture technologies such as mussel and edible oyster farming, sea weed farming, seed production techniques for high value finfishes and marine ornamental fishes. Cage fish farming is an emerging aquaculture technology in the country developed and popularised by the institute. Development of hatchery technologies of high value finfishes, standardisation of culture protocols as well as successful frontline demonstrations and participatory technology development programmes by the institute paved the way for popularisation of cage fish farming in all the maritime states of the country. Cage fish farming is low impact farming technology with high economic returns which has tremendous scope for employment and income generation for the coastal population in the country. There are at present 3000 cage farm units installed in the marine and coastal waters of the country under the direct technical supervision of CMFRI.
