Aquaculture is a growing young science with a lot of potential for innovation. India is endowed with several species of fin fishes. shell fishes and seaweeds for aquaculture. The varying climatic conditions from Himalayas to Capecomorin provide different environment to culture temperate and tropical species in India. Though these species have been identified and published in different books/ magazines/journals. there was not even one publication to include all of them together. In this context. it was felt by the organising committee of 'INDAQUA' - the first Aquaculture show in India to bring out a handbook on identification of cultivable species in India. I am indeed grateful to the hard work put up by Mr. P. Dhandapani, Zoological Survey of India. Madras to collect and compile all relevant informations on taxonomy and distribution of several species in one volume. The Department of Agriculture and Cooperation. Ministry of Agriculture. Government of India have generously contributed to print this publication. which is deeply acknowledged. The effort put up by Dr. G. Santhana Krishnan. Mr. P. Easwara Prasad and Mr. B. Vishnu Bhat to co-ordinate the publication work is appreciated. I am sure that this publication will be of immense help to farmers/entrepreneurs who wish to take up aquaculture in India.
