Realising the immense potentialities which India holds for large-scale coastal aquaculture with its numerous bays along its coast line, experiments on the culture of fish in the pens in the sea were initiated ih the beginning of 1977 at Mandapam Regional Centre of Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute on the south east coast of India. Two pens, made out of bamboo screens, were erected at a site in the Gulf of Mannar near CMFRI Jetty, Mandapam camp.
