Aquaculture has grown rapidly in the recent years and has promise for further potential growth. This rapid expansion was possibly because of the growing demand for aquatic products and the failure of the global capture fishery, which has been exploited, to or beyond its potential. When the global catch statistics remains standstill between 80-100 million metric tons per year, the global aquaculture production is registering an overwhelming annual growth of 8-14% producing between 20-25 million tons per year. Of the aquaculture practices, coastal shrimp farming has registered the maximum growth of about 400% in the last decade. The two factors resulting to its boom were the increasing demand for Indian shrimp and the improved farming techniques
