Mariculture is the rearing of the aquatic organisms under controlled or semi-controlled conditions in coastal and offshore waters where the salinity is maximal and not subject to significant daily or seasonal variations. Mariculture contributes to the production of protein rich food and has been the source of livelihood of millions of coastal villagers. Global production from the marine environment increased from 21 .6 million tonnes in 1999 to 27 .6 million tonnes in 2003.
