    The domestic demand for fish in India is growing and is expected to touch 15.61 million metric tonnes by 2030. With the present annual fish production of 12.39 million metric tonnes, a gap of 3.22 million metric tonnes will need to be bridged to meet the projected domestic fish demand. This can be achieved by diversification of the culture system, cultivable fish species and by increase in the cultivable area. India, with 8119 km length of coastline, encompassing nine coastal states and possessing an Exclusive Economic Zone area of 2.172 million square km offers immense potential for mariculture. However the mariculture has failed to achieve its true potential because of several issues, most important of which is non-availability of adequate number of quality seeds for stocking.
