The role of aquaculture in increasing fish production is well recognized today. The contribution of aquaculture to global food production and security has been widely acknowledged since the start of the 21st century. Global aquaculture production has increased continuously over the last five decades, and particularly in India, aquaculture has become one of the fastest growing and most efficient agri-sector. Biotechnology can currently be considered of importance in aquaculture. The increase in the production of aquatic organisms over the last two decades through the use of biotechnology indicates that in a few generations biotechnology may overtake conventional techniques, at least for the commercially more valuable species. At present, the most commonly used methods in fish biotechnology are the use of synthetic hormones in fish breeding, production of monosex, uniparental and polyploid individuals which can be used to produce triploid, tetraploid, haploid, gynogenetic and androgenetic fish, molecular biology and transgenesis, biotechnology in aquaculture nutrition and health management, gene banking are chromosome manipulation and hormonal treatments.
