Shrimp farming established into a potential and viable aquaculture practice in India, still could have improved its performance by leaps and bounds, had it been undertaken with a little more scientific approach and application on the basics! The water quality, nutrition and health - the three prime concepts of aquaculture need to be managed cautiously and more cleverly to derive maximum yield to the advantage of mankind. Simply by recording the water quality parameters or by dumping the feed and health products may not yield the optimum results and returns. A meaningful interpretation of all available data from the culture system and their effective utilization to manage and to overcome the problems through appropriate remedial measures is what aqua culturists are expected to do, under crisis situations. For that to happen we need to get our basics absolutely right! It is towards achieving this task; a professional approach backup by the sound technical knowledge becomes indispensable. This book is written with an intention to help the people concerned to gain an insight in to the intricacies of shrimp aquaculture management. The stakeholders viz. the fisheries graduates, aquaculture experts, technicians, extension workers, entrepreneurs and others can be immensely benefited by reading this book. Shrimp aquaculture, a farming practice of global significance needs to be sustained in India, for it has the ability to earn enormous returns to our industrious farming community and fabulous foreign exchange for the country.

"Dr. S. Felix, Professor of Tamil Nadu Fisheries University at Chennai has been in teaching and research for the past 27 years in the field of Aquaculture Biotechnology. He has developed a number of ‘farmer-friendly aquaculture systems’ and ‘BMPs. He has half a dozen patents registered in innovative aquaculture systems, protocols and new products to his credit. His area of research includes raceway technology, microbial flocculent based aqua farming, designing of cages and lined farming systems, micro algae based biofuel production, fermented biofloc systems and Marine Single Cell Detritus (MSCD) production. He has to his credit over a hundred research papers and reports, seven books and two dozen manuals. He has created important Research farm and Lab infrastructures for his University viz. Fish Biotechnology Centre (Thoothukudi), Maritech Research Centre (Tharavaikullam), Research Farm facility for Aquariculture (Madhavaram) and Raceway Farm Complex (Thoothukudi). His current interest is to contribute sincerely for the development of ‘Freshwater Ornamental fish culture sector’ a vibrant and the most potential area under aquaculture for the benefit of farming community of the country
