‘Shrimp Raceway Aquaculture Technology for India’
Aquaculture in India is currently at the cross roads (!) and we are not able to enhance our fish production to the next level though countries such as Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia are showing tremendous guts and will power to grow at a rapid phase on the aquaculture front. Two major critical factors which are considered to be the stumblingblocks for aquaculture development in India are : (i) not diversifying and introducing new viable species (ii) innovative, intensive and advanced aquaculture systems are seldom introduced.
Its time we address these issues to pave way for the genuine development to take place in aquaculture sector in India. ‘Indoor aquaculture’ is one such culture practice that can be adopted effectively to enhance fish production as it only requires less space, less water and less energy. The success achieved through these systems in countries such as USA, Hawaii, Mexico, Malaysia, etc are phenomenal.
A raceway culture system designed, prototyped, fabricated, domesticated and demonstrated for the benefit of scientific and farming community, by the author in India is dealt in detail in this book.
This system can be adopted or domesticated for both marine and freshwater cultivable high value species. By effecting location – specific - modifications, this system should work wonderfully, as it has been proved to be sustainable and eco-friendly by fellow countrymen in other parts of the world. Enterprising entrepreneurs and aquaculture technologists are invited to adopt this system to their full advantage!
