Abstract

Significant advances have been made in the mariculture fin fishes in many parts of the world. In India two major cultivable fin fishes, namely, mullets and milk fish, have been used in the traditional culture practices and also in the scientific culture of fin fishes in ponds and pens. Among mullets, the striped mullet Mugil cephalus is a fast growing species and is commonly available on the east and west coasts of India. It is also an important table fish and has a good market both in the coastal and interior regions of our country.
