World aquaculture has witnessed a tremendous growth during last 50 years and expected to be the most potential sector of the future for providing quality protein to human population. Though aquaculture alone is able to provide 50% of the total fish production, where only freshwater resources supply 60% of total production. Hence, sustainability of this growth rate is the biggest challenge for the near future, which needs attention of all stake holders. This needs to be sensitized through our educational programme.
