The seed of Holothuria scabra commercially most important sea cucumber was produced for the first time In the hatchery of Tuticorin Research Centre of CMFRI in 1988. Since then the seed is produced at a number of occasions The juveniles of sea cucumbers produced can be grown along with in prawn farms since much of the feed given to the prawns goes as waste and settles down In the bottom of the pond enriching the farm soil.
