Brackishwater Aquaculture has been identified by the Government of India as one of the high potential area for increasing fish and shell fish production and also to achieve maximum economic and social benefits. Institution of an All India Coordinated Project on Brackishwater Fish Farming by Indian Council of Agricultural Research in early seventies transformed the traditional activity of brackishwater aquaculture into a scientific activity. Late eighties saw the emergence of commercial brackishwater aquaculture in the country. Sensing the need for R&D support to the sector, ICAR established Central Institute of Brackishwater Aquaculture in 1987, with the mandate to conduct research for development of techno-economically viable and sustainable culture system for finfish and shellfish in brackishwater and to undertake transfer of technology through training, education and extension programmes.
