India contributes about 4% of the world aquaculture prawn production. Prawn farming provides excellent employment opportunities and generates income, particularly to India's coastal villagers. It, however, has caused impact on land and water resources use. India has about 55 prawn species, 11 of which are suitable for coastal culture. With all these, along with available natural resources, favorable climate, greater awareness of prawn farming, availability of trained human resource, and government and research support, India 's prawn farming industry is expected to develop further
