    In recent years interest in aquaculture is gaining greater momentum. The breeding and rearing of aquatic plants and animals in enclosures/ confinements, has increased mainly due to over exploitation of aquatic resources and declining of fish catches in major traditional fishing grounds at a global level. The farming of fish is widely recognized as the best alternative to meet the protein requirements of the expanding population and to provide them with alternative livelihood opportunities for their socio-economic upliftment. In many countries, especially in the developing world, fish and other aquaculture products serve as the main source of cheap protein to combat malnutrition and under-nutrition.
