James, P S B R and Ponniah, A G (1991) Concepts in marine biotechnology and their applications for enhancing aquaculture productivity. Aquaculture Productivity. pp. 599-605.
Application of biotechnology techniques to agriculture increased the quality and quantity of the final yield. Genetic engineering applied to the production of fish, molluscs and crustaceans although at the rudimentary stage offers promise. Besides, other techniques like tissue culture, chromosomal engineering, cryopreservation of embryos, and production of transgenic organisms also offer immense scope to expand and improve aquaculture operations.
