    The book “Cage Aquaculture in India” (authors: G. Syda Rao, Imelda Joseph, K.K. Philipose and M. Suresh Kumar; publisher: Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), Kochi; Price: INR. 800.00) is a monumental work by the authors and first comprehensive publication on the subject. Enclosed fresh and brackish water bodies such as ponds being fully or in some cases over-exploited creating environmental problems, the world is looking to farming of fish in open waters whether they be fresh or marine to meet the increasing demand for fish not only in India, but also all over the world. Cage farming of fish in freshwater fish started sometime back in India on a small-scale but for various reasons could not take off on a commercial scale
