    A marine fish hatchery is a complex system consisting various units like seawater intake, water treatment and storage, broodstock holding, indoor algal stock culture, intermediary and outdoor algal culture, rotifer culture, artemia hatching and enrichment, larviculture, nursery rearing, laboratory, feed and chemical storage, aeration facility, waste water treatment and disposal, workshop and staff accommodation area. During the production season proper hatchery management requires specialised skills and total dedication by well-trained personnel. Therefore, proper designing of a fish hatchery will give technical solutions to give best results in terms of convenience, ease of use, effective use of the full production capacity, bio-security, hygienic working conditions and cost effectiveness. Improper designing of the hatchery or construction would result in the risk of ineffective utilization of the facilities, uneconomical operation, increased manpower to manage the facility, chances of cross contamination, loss of stock etc.
