    Until recently, monoculture of either Penaeus monodon or Litopenaeus vannamei was the major mariculture species in India. However, due to disease setbacks, there was an extensive push from national R&D institutions to develop new-age mariculture technologies. This led to the first successful demonstration of open sea cage farming along the south-east coast of India, and subsequently, various marine finfish and shellfish mariculture sites were set up along the country’s coastline. A few bottlenecks remain, particularly regarding commercial seed production, species-specific feed formulations and comprehensive sea space management plans, but R & D on breeding and seed production technologies for candidate species continues apace to support the imminent expansion of sustainable mariculture in the country.
