About The Book

A national seminar on “Current and Emerging Trends in Aquaculture and its Impact on Rural Development” was organised in the Collage of Fisheries, OUAT from 14-16 February, 1995 in collaboration with the Central Institute of Freshwater Aquaculture, Kauslyaganga, Bhubaneswar and Directorate of Fisheries, Govt. of Orissa. About 165 papers were presented in the seminar by Scientists in various sessions such as Aquafarming systems, Seed production technology, Biotechnology in Aquaculture, Nutrition and feed technology, Fish health management, Aquaculture economics, Aquaculture extension, Aquaculture policy and environmental issues and Aquaculture entrepreneurship in rural development and the role of NGOs. Full text of papers accepted by the referees are included in the present volume. The seminar was conducted at a time when the aquaculture enterprise was at croos roads— a relatively ecofriendly enterprise concerned with the production of protein rich food was labelled as a disastrous venture, polluting the environment and harming the society— particularly people belonging to the lower strata, living in the coastal fishing villages. The seminar was organised with a view to critically examine this matter and to suggest measures to mitigate the negative impacts. What are the emerging trends in Aquaculture? Are the emerging technological economically viable, environmentally friendly, socially acceptable to have long term sustainability? the papers presented in the seminar and its recommendations with throw some light on these questions. The book deals with Aquafarming systems, Seed production technology, Biotechnology, Nutrition and feed technology, Fish health management, Economics, Aquaculture policy and environmental issues etc.
