Coastal aquaculture has been receiving much importance during the last two cades due to the tremendous potential it has in augmenting prawn and fish production and increastng employment opportunities to the rural coastal fisherfolk. Farming in brackish waters and backwaters has bee~ in vogue for ages in several areas in the country especially in Kerala, Karnataka, Goa and West Bengal (Alikunhi 1978, Silas 1978). An area extending to about 6,000 hactares of low lying coastal region in Kerala is utilised for paddy-cumprawn culture. The 'Gazani' farms of Karnataka have an area of 2,300 hactares mainly in NorthCanaradistrict. Herein the brackish waters near to the coast, prawn! fish culture is carried out along with salt production while in the interior areas paddy-cum- fish culture is practiced.
