About The Book

In India, aquaculture is gaining importance day by day, due its vast untapped potential, but still, the knowledge of people practicing it is very very less. So in order to enhance the knowledge base of aquaculturists as well as students of aquaculture and fisheries of all levels (UG & PG), this book is written in a simple language with suitable diagrams in order to make the readers understand the facts thoroughly, and apply it in a practical way. We hope, his book will meet the requirements of undergraduate as well as postgraduate students of all Indian universities having a subject of aquaculture, aquaculturists and budding aquaculturists of Indian Subcontinent.
