Abstract

The world production of aquatic biological resources is nearing an almost saturation level due to their nonjudicious exploitation during the last few decades. But in the vast majority of the countries of the world where malnutrition due to protein deficiency is widespread, fish along with other aquatic organisms constitutes the main source of chief protein. Aquaculture (the culture of aquatic organisms for human utiIisation) can afford surprising boost to total biological production and offers advantage over other conventional methods of exploitation through controlled supervision on production, harvesting and processing of aquatic organisms.
