    The ICAR-Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) stands as India’s premier marine fisheries research institution, distinguished by its robust infrastructure and a proficient workforce committed to research and development in marine fisheries, mariculture and other allied areas, including capacity building on both national and international fronts. Recognizing the pivotal role of the fisheries and aquaculture sector and the urgent need for sustainability, the African-Asian Rural Development Organization (AARDO), New Delhi, has strategically collaborated with CMFRI to provide training and skill development to persons from AARDO member countries. Sponsored by AARDO and the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, the capacity-building initiative was designed to benefit both India and AARDO member countries. The Workshop-cum-Training on ‘Fisheries Management and Aquaculture’ offered a significant opportunity for 11 participants from eight AARDO member countries such as Bangladesh, Ghana, Zambia, Malaysia, Namibia, Nigeria, Oman and Egypt, to undergo the comprehensive training at CMFRI. This Course Manual, released on the occasion of the Workshop-cum-Training, is a compilation of lecture notes from eminent resource persons involved in the Programme. I am confident that this manual will serve as a valuable resource, enhancing the knowledge and competence of the participants in the fields of fisheries management and aquaculture, proving beneficial in their future endeavours in their respective countries. I extend gratitude to Dr Manoj Nardeosingh, the Secretary-General, of AARDO, New Delhi; Mr Rami Mahmoud Abdel Halim Qtaishat, Assistant Secretary-General, AARDO, New Delhi and Dr Khusnood Ali, Head and Programme Coordinator, AARDO, New Delhi, for being instrumental in selecting CMFRI to organize this Programme.
