The protected bays and lagoons of the island provide suitable sites for mariculture. Further there are many potential candidates for mariculture - food fishes, bait fishes, ornamental fishes, holothurians, turtles and sea weeds. Apart from the indigenous varieties of culturable species, fry of fast growing fishes and prawns can be transported from the mainland and cultured. But so far no serious attempts have been made to utilise the Mariculture potentials of islands.
