fhe Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has evolved new indigenous techniques for farming prawns on modern scientific lines. iVI/s Motha Brothers, the leading salt producers of Tuticorin, approached the Institute for development of prawn farming in the saline fallow coastal lands adjacent to their saltpans in Veppalodai, north of Tuticorin. Realising the importance of demonstration and dissemination of the technical know-how developed in the Institute, the Institute agreed to develop the farm on a trial basis, and the work was started in early 1986.
