AQUACULTURE AND MARINE BIOTECHNOLOGY

 

Aquaculture & Marine Biotechnology have been the subject of great importance not only because of the sustainable utilization of their resources to feed the billion people of the world but also for the future challenges for discovery of new products and process development of economic importance through its treasure recognition and diversification. Apart from contributing to high quality and healthy food (aquaculture), nutraceuticals and medicinal products (anti-cancer and antimicrobials), this sector is expected to contribute to sustainable alternative source of energy (biofuel from microalgae) and environmental health. The potential for the contribution of Marine Biotechnology is, therefore, even more relevant now than it was ten years ago and a sound strategy for its development in India is urgently needed to allow this potential to be realized. Marine Biotechnology is capable of making an important contribution towards meeting impending challenges like a sustainable supply of food and energy and human health.
