Abstract

Over the last fifty years, global aquaculture production has undergone remarkable changes, with production scaling up from less than a million tonnes in the early 1950s to 48.1 million tonnes in 2005. China contributed to 67.3% of the production, followed by India with 5.9%. Aquaculture now accounts for nearly 45% of the world’s food fish supply, and this share is expected to reach 50% in 2015 (FAO, 2007). Mariculture is a relatively virgin field with continuous scope for diversification and its ultimate aim is always to enhance high value sea food production through ecofriendly, cost-effective technologies. The present annual mariculture production in India is about 7000t, which is estimated to reach about 1 lakh tonnes in 2020.
