The sea-bed is considered as a major source of energy, minerals and food. One of the greatest attractions to the scientist in the sea, is the life in it. Invertebrates, fish, mammals and plants of many kinds and sizes fill the waters. The interest in the underwater science is growing to rival the interest in interplanetary excursions. In this connection diving skill by man becomes a vital factor in the armoury of techniques which are being used to explore and exploit the sea. There is a lot to be done in the shallow limits of the ocean base with the help of the aqualung and the very nature of the cheap cost of possessing and operating the aqualung makes it all the more easy for the developing country to introduce this system of diving in the sea bottom explorations off its coast. Organising diving clubs will not only impart training to the aspirants but also cater information on all matters connected with the progress of diving activities. The next stage in the development of the underwater activities is the manufacture of diving equipments in India itself.
