    Abstract

    Aquaculture is a nuiltidisciplinary activity, more complex, than agriculture due to | the multidimensional aquatic medium. The aquaculture boom and increased socioeconomic benefits together with increase in extent and intensity of aquaculture are alleged to have created several problems, particularly those of deteriorating water and soil quality and outbreak of diseases (Kutty, 1999). For example, the global production of farmed shrimp has doubled in the past 15 years. India has also witnessed such spectacular growth in shrimp farming until the mid nineties, after which it became beset with disease and environmental problems. Overstocking, overfeeding and excessive use of antibiotics during farming are some of the reasons attributed to the outbreak of shrimp diseases. Even by the year 2001, a total solution to the problem has evaded the scientists and policy makers. But what has been recognised now by scientists and policy makers is that aquaculture must be environmentally friendly so that it can sustain itself without seriously affecting the coastal ecosystem. In other words, the ecological footprint of aquaculture must be sufficiently small so as to ensure sustainability.
