This technology has been adopted by the States of Kerala and Karnataka to build large commercial hatcheries at Cannanore and Kumta Bay respectively. The technology is so simple that It can bs adapted by fishermen families living on the sea shore for producing prawn seed on a mini scale in their houses. The equipment needed for this mini hatchery and the economics of such operations are given In the paper. There is great scope for developing it into a cottage industry in the coastal areas.
