The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) estimates that half of the world’s seafood demands will be met by aquaculture in 2020. A recent study revealed the shocking conclusion that the way the fishing is conducted now is not sustainable and predicted the end of fisheries industry by 2050. India stands second in global aquaculture production. During fiscal year 2009-2010, according to officials at India’s Marine Exports Product Development Authority (MPEDA), total aquaculture production reached 106,000 metric tons, an increase of more than 30% over the previous fiscal year. Tamil Nadu having about 56,620 ha of brackish water lands and the potential area for shrimp culture is estimated about 3,684.18 ha.
