    The results of gender researches reveal that despite the important role women play in agricultural production, they remain disadvantaged in numerous aspects. Women mostly have limited access to agricultural inputs including seeds and fertilizers, technological resources, equipment, land often also lack the capacity needed to deploy these resources. Today, cage culture of marine fish is receiving more attention as increasing consumption of fish coupled with declining stocks of wild fishes has increased interest in fish production in cages. Suitable locations along the long coastline including brackish water areas available in coastal states and other underutilized water bodies can be better utilized by adopting cage culture which can play a significant role in increasing the overall fish production and household incomes of fishermen.
