The rate of fish consumption is likely to go up due to increased awareness about fish as a source of cheap and highly nutritious but harmless food item. Hence there is every need to augment fish production not only to meet our food requirements but also to increase foreign exchange earnings. The current level of fish production is inadequate to fulfil all these needs. An analysis of the trend of fish production during the past few years indicates that there may not be any significant improvement in it in the coming years. In this context, measures to increase fish production are to be thought of Aquaculture is the only way to achieve this. In Kerala at present aquaculture is restricted to backwaters and inland waterbodies. In order to enhance fish production, farming of fish and other species of aquatic organisms is to be extended to inshore coastal waters for which suitable farming methods are to be adopted.
