Abstract:

The Fisheries sector is a dominant sector in India, providing employment to millions of people and contributes to the food security of the country. It is one of the leading food sectors in the world. The milkfish Chanos chanos, is an economically important cultured marine species, chief food source in Southeast Asia mainly in Taiwan, Indonesia and the Philippines. They are considered as sustainable and affordable species, which is suitable for polyculture with other species such as shrimp, catfish and tilapia and can tolerate a wide range of salinity. This review will provide an overview of the available potential resources for the culture, the biology of milkfish and culture of milkfish in a different system.
