    Mariculture, cultivating organisms in the open sea using cages or tanks, is popular given the increasing demand for seafood. The estimated marine production capacity in India is 4–8 million tonnes. But current production is negligible. To identify the best locations, many constraints need to be considered. Wind, waves, currents and tides determine suitability. Mariculture should also not clash with traditional fishing, maritime traffic and offshore pipelines. It is in such situations that geographic information-based multi-criteria tools can be of help.
