Kutty, M N (2001) Evolution of eco-friendly coastal aquaculture/mariculture technologies. In: Perspectives In Mariculture. Menon, N G and Pillai, P P,(eds.) The Marine Biological Association of India, Cochin, pp. 1-34.



Global aquaculture production from marine waters, which accounts Jor 54% of total production, increased from 6.86 miRion metric tonnes in 1987 to 18.51 mUlionmtin 1996, registering an increase of 270% over the decade. India's marine/coastal aquaculture production is almost restricted to shrimps, as the production of marine finfrshes, moRuscs and sea weeds are negligible. An index of Biodiversity Utilization for Aquaculture (BUA) calculated for India is quite low (0.13) when compared to the highest (0.51) for Taiwan and Korea (RoK).
