Economics of oyster culture

Nayar, K Nagappan and Mahadevan, S and Muthiah, P (1987) Economics of oyster culture. CMFRI Bulletin -Oyster culture-status and prospects, 38 . pp. 67-70.



Economic analysis of any system of aquaculture practice aids not only to improvise management practices but also ensures profitability. Attention on return on investment has bsen rightly emphasized by MitcheU and Usry (1967), PiUay (1973) and IPFC (1975) to show that well planned and propsrly managed aquaculture ventures compare very favourably with similar other food production industries. Homell (1910) realising the edibility of the oyster meat and its nutritional value initiated efforts on oyster farming at Pulicat Lake and gave an approximate account of working expenses of a one ha. park.
