The present paper highlights the recent development in aquaculture production in India. Recent FAO data indicate that world aquaculture production includes 80 million tonnes of farmed food fish with major contribution continuing from Chinese carps and tilapia. In shellfish production, major contributors include whiteleg shrimp and cupped oysters production. Asia accounts for more than 85 percent of world aquaculture production, and the major producers include China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Bangladesh. The three Indian major carps contribute bulk of the Indian aquaculture production. In recent years, cage culture of marine fish has been promoted in India. Globally, an increase in the availability of genomic information of farmed fish and technological advancement in the aquaculture production systems are likely to contribute in the aquaculture development in India.
