    Cage farming is widely recognized as one of the most important culture technologies in mariculture for sustainable enhancement of fish production. In India, high saline estuaries are unified ecosystems, that can be considered for cage culture activities as well as for improving the livelihood of selected rural population that depend on these waters for their livelihood. Huge estuarine resources are available along both the east and west coasts of the country and this under-utilized resources could be efficiently used by culturing different species of finfish in cages installed thereof. Several local species of marine finfish can be cultured in high saline estuarine cages. The technology for cage culture of species such as Asian seabass, Indian pompano, silver pompano, orange spotted grouper and mangrove red snapper has already been demonstrated by ICAR-CMFRI at different locations along the coast.
