Abstract

India is the fourth largest producer of fish in the world and the total fish production is around 7.5 million tonnes per year and its share in the GDP is around 1.4 per cent. The marine fishproduction was 3.2 million tonnes for the year 2008 which form 42.7 per cent of the total fish production. With continued human pressure on marine fisheries and ocean resources, aquaculture has become one of the most promising avenues for increasing marine fish production in the future. On a global scale, the decline of fish stocks has been a motivating factor for expanding the role of aquaculture. It is well known that the ready availability of seed in adequate quantities is one of the major constraints in the development and expansion of mariculture. In this context, the concept of capture based aquaculturejmariculture is considered as a viable option for augmenting production of high value species.
