Abstract

Fisheries sector is now facing demand-supply gap due to declining marine fish stocks. Countries have realized that intensifying sea farming - ‘mariculture’ will be one of the productive initiatives to fulfill this gap. Latest statistics shows that the contribution of mariculture to global fish production is increasing constantly. Apart from providing comparatively low cost proteinaceous food, mariculture also ensures sustainability of the stocks. Keeping all this in view, this article has been attempted to provide an overall glance of the current global status of mariculture production as per the recent state of world fisheries and aquaculture published by Food and Agriculture Organization.
