Abstract

With the accelerated human population explosion, demand for fish is also increasing rapidly In Indian context, total fish production comes from the two sectors, marine and inland. It is well evident from the production trend that the fish landings from marine sector have become either almost static or declining. So, aquaculture can be a possible avenue to increase production for meeting the fish demand. Presently, aquaculture contributes around 85-90% of total inland fish production. Aquaculture is defined as the system of breeding and farming of aquatic species in a controlled environment. While innovative aquaculture involves the applications of new and more effective ways or solutions for aquaculture management, there may be interventions related to breeding and farming techniques, aquatic environment management, disease control or animal health monitoring, nutrition and feed management of the cultured organisms, genetics and biotechnological tools which directly or indirectly play roles in improvement of aquaculture production in an environment-friendly and sustainable manner. Here are some innovations which have played or are playing or will play a significant role in the development of aquaculture sector.
