The annual production of fish in India is about 1.5 million tons including 0.14 million tons through aquaculture and it is estimated that about 10 million tons of fish may be required to meet the demand of the increasing human population. It is felt that new techniques have to be developed for the production of fish through aquaculture and capture fisheries besides creating an awareness among the public about fisheries science. Although several books on the individual aspects of Fisheries Science are available from abroad, a comprehensive compendium incorporating modern techniques relating to Indian conditions is lacking. In order to fill up this long felt gap this publication is being brought out. The present publication, a compilation of mainly published articles in leading English Dailies and Magazines has three parts. The first part deals with important culture practices relating to freshwater and brackishwater systems. The second part deals with articles relating to the distribution and abundance of fish and invertebrates and the third part with modern techniques of marine capture fisheries and fish and shellfish processing and production to value added fisheries products. All these articles have been written in an easy to read style with suitable illustrations and it is hoped that the publication would serve as a valuable guide for fisheris students, aquaculturists, fisheries technologists, marine biolgists and general public interested in fisheries.
