    Fish production from the sea in India has almost reached the optimum level and aquaculture is fast emerging as an alternative avocation for many coastal rural fisherfolks. India is having about 2 million hectares of potential area suitable for the promotion of aquaculture. Hardly 10% of the potential area is presently used for various types of aquaculture practices, concentrating mostly on shrimp farming mainly due to its high export demand and lucrative price. But in recent years the demand for several other items such as clams, mussels, edible oysters, crabs, lobsters and a few finfishes is continuously increasing and commanding a premium price in the international market. Hence, there is immense scope to promote aquaculture of these varieties in our country by adopting appropriate location-specific farming practices. The economic viability and comparative profitability of different culture practices are the determining factors for the investors in their choice, selection and commercial adoption of various production systems in aquaculture.
