Main objective of the division is to develop eco-friendly technology packages for augmentation of food production and income generation opportunities in the coastal areas.

Techniques for seed production of marine resources such as

  • Clown fishes
  • Damsel fishes
  • Blue swimmer crabs
  • Sand lobster
  • Marine Shrimp Penaeus semisulcatus
  • Marine pearl oyster
  • Indian edible oyster
  • Clams and Cockles ..... have been developed

Technological upgradation have been made to improve the production and increase profitability in farming systems, especially in

  • Marine mussel farming
  • Remote setting of oysters
  • Production of akoya and mabe pearls
  • Seaweed farming
  • Integrated farming of seaweeds and bivalves
  • Farming of crabs and lobsters
  • Intensive culture of marine shrimps
