Abstract

The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, ventured upon a programme on the artificial breeding and production of seed for culture and propagation of the commercially valuable holothurian species. The Institute's success on the above aspects under controlled conditions by thermal stimulation is significant which may eventually solve the problems presently faced by the beche-de-mer industry in India. This is the first time that such work is carried out in India.
