THE ART OF
Aquaculture is a highly skilled multi-disciplined biological
science. The main components also comprise biotechnology,
aquaculture engineering and socio-economics.
Success or failure of an aquaculture venture does not depend
solely on scientific application but much depends on the holistic
approach of an aquaculturist.
An aspect which is widely overlooked in this field is the art of
dealing with people, such as technicians, personnel, farmers,
workers - all segments working within a farm. This element is
just as important as the actual technology itself.
Many believe that success can be achieved if the focus is kept on
technology. This is partially true, but the actual factor is the
need to form a cohesive and cooperative social network team
involving - owners, bankers, technicians and operators.
Aquaculture especially shrimp culture is still in its infancy
stage, however, there has been many recent advances in technology,
including domestication of shrimp, fish and shellfish species,
such as SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) & SPR (Specific Pathogen
Resistant) shrimps. In future, as sea catch diminishes, much of
the sea products will have to come from aquaculture. Many studies
are being implemented not only for efficient and sustainable
production but also for human health and impact on the
