    The increasing demand for fish in domestic and export markets indicate good prospects for large scale sea farming and coastal mariculture. The open sea cage culture has been expanding in recent years on a global basis and it is viewed by many stakeholders in the industry as the aquaculture system of the millennium. Cage culture has made possible the large-scale production of commercial finfish in many parts of the world and can be considered as the most efficient and economical way of rising fish. It is well known that availability of seed in adequate quantities is one of the major constraints in the development and expansion of mariculture. The increasing exploitation pressure on the wild stocks of many major marine fisheries has led to over exploitation and consequent decline in their catch and hence the only sunrise sector to augment seafood production is through marine farming.
