Coastal aquaculture is one among the age- old avocations of man. The Romans and the Japanese are known to have practised oyster culture in its primitive form for several centuries and the South-East Asian countries have been carrying out fish culture for at least five centuries now. While the developed countries/ where aquaculture was started in recent times, have far advanced in the field with sophisticated technology, in the few developing countries, including India, which have traditional forms of aquaculture, it still remains at subsistence level, almost as it was in the distant past. But the recent developments in coastal aquaculture in this region signify the beginning of a new era in fisheries development with a thrust on the culture fisheries.
