    Global production from aquaculture has grown substantially, contributing significant quantities to the world’s supply of fish for human consumption. This increasing trend is projected to continue in the forthcoming decades also. It is envisaged that the sector will contribute more effectively to food security, poverty reduction and economic development by producing 83 million tonnes of aquatic food by 2030– with minimum impact on the environment and maximum benefit to the society with an increase of 37.5 million tonnes from the 2004 level (FAO). Aquaculture is a diverse sector using many strategies for fish production. The harvesting of wild individuals, either as broodstock whose eggs will hatch and develop under culture in ponds or cages, or as early life-history stages for on-growing under confined and controlled conditions is one of the strategies.
