Abstract

India is bestowed with about 2 million hectares of brackish water areas all along the coast Though fish culture is as old as civilisat ion, practically very little of these areas are curr ently utilised for productive purposes even by traditional practices . On a modest estimate, if 20,000 ha could be brought under scientific culture operations to produce annually an average 500kg/ha, our country could produce an additi onal one million tonnes of fish (Jhingran, 1975).
