    Culture of marine finfishes in a controlled condition is an upcoming industry, which is very much essential to satisfy the rising demand for protein rich seafood. Traditional aquaculture ponds use huge quantity of water and land to produce lesser output. Whereas Recirculatory Aquaculture System (RAS) is one such system in which fishes are cultured in high density at controlled environmental condition with lesser usage of water and comparatively less area of land to produce higher output. RAS is designed to minimize or reduce dependence on water exchange and flushing in fish culture units. The systems have practical applications in commercial aquaculture hatcheries, holding tanks and aquaria systems as well as small scale aquaculture projects. Water is specifically recirculated, when there is a specific need to minimize water replacement, to maintain the quality condition which differ from the supply water or to compensate for an insufficient water supply.
