    The ornamental fish industry falls in three general categories that include Tropical freshwater (guppies, neon tetras), Temperate freshwater (Koi carps) and marine ornamentals (primarily reef fishes, shrimps and corals). The global ornamental fish trade is spurred by growing interest in aquarium keeping and reportedly includes more than 120 countries with around 2000 species, predominantly freshwater, traded. While the supply is mainly from Asia- Pacific, Europe and USA are key markets. The Government of India through its Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY) is encouraging the stakeholders to tap the economic potential offered by sustainable ornamental fish production and trade clusters. Development of an associated indigenous pet fish feed industry is vital to attain this goal and the lead article in this issue of MFIS shares some insights on this topic. Findings while empowering fishermen through appropriate techno-economic interventions are included. Coral reefs play a key role in enhancing and sustaining marine biodiversity and marine fisheries. The observations recorded during an underwater coral survey in the Andaman & Nicobar islands will also be interesting to our readers.
