    Abstract

    The central government of India introduced the Tribal Sub-Plan (TSP) with an aim to bridge the gap between the schedule tribes (STs) and the general population with respect to socio-economic development indicators in a time-bound holistic manner. This plan has been effectively implemented by the Government of India through different state and central government agencies with research institutions functioning under Government of India also actively involved in working for welfare of the tribal communities including skill development programmes with recent viable technologies. Cage farming technology has emerged as one of the most important farming methods in mariculture for enhancing fish production. The cage culture methods for marine fin fishes such as Asian sea bass, Indian pompano, silver pompano, orange spotted grouper and mangrove red snapper has been demonstrated by ICAR-CMFRI in different places of the country. Cage farming can be efficiently utilised by the tribal population living in the vicinities of the water bodies, who are generally considered as landless or having mere land areas.
