India has to sustain 16 per cent of the world's population on 2.4 per cent of the global land area. It has to feed its burgeoning population using 3 per cent and 5 per cent of global farm land and water resources. Hence, its dependence on aquatic resources for production of additional food is obvious and shall become more and more necessary. Fish, as a source of 'rich food for poor people', can play an important role in improving food security and nutritional status of rural people as indispensable source of micronutrients and vitamins. Where there is a lack of alternative locally produced protein, fish provides the major cheap source of protein intake as well as contributes towards calorie supply for rural people.

Abstract


India has to sustain 16 per cent of the world's population on 2.4 per cent of the global land area. It has to feed its burgeoning population using 3 per cent and 5 per cent of global farm land and water resources. Hence, its dependence on aquatic resources for production of additional food is obvious and shall become more and more necessary. Fish, as a source of 'rich food for poor people', can play an important role in improving food security and nutritional status of rural people as indispensable source of micronutrients and vitamins. Where there is a lack of alternative locally produced protein, fish provides the major cheap source of protein intake as well as contributes towards calorie supply for rural people.
