    Abstract

    The development of coastal aquaculture and utilisation of brackishwater areas for productive purposes are receiving priority attention in our Fisheries Plan Schemes. Kerala has traditionally an established crop-cum-flsh culture system in the pokkali paddy fields of the Ernakulam and adjacent Districts. However, in general the yield of the pokkali paddy strain is low being 700-1000 kg/ha/harvest. Similarly the production of fish and prawn from wild stocking through tidal effects from these fields is also low, yielding hardly about 400-700 kg/ha/season depending upon the location and other parameters.
