"Fisheries form an important sector of the country's economy in terms of food supply, employment, income and foreign exchange earnings. Fishes are one of the important sources of cheap protein food for the people and millions of fishermen and several industries depend on this source.
The present book is based on recent views, ideas and progress in the field of fisheries. The book contains some important aspects of applied fisheries. It covers topics such as live feed organisms in prawns, hatcheries culture and breeding of magur and murrels, impact of exotic fishes on indigenous fish fauna, fisheries cooperatives, marketing etc.
The book will be of invaluable help to teachers, students, researchers and all those who are interested in the fisheries." (jacket)
