Aquatic ecosystem provide far diverse habitat and the inhabiting and the inhabiting biota but our intrest in them is to recxent and hence knowledge about them is extremely small. The aquatic systems harbour organisms varying from small microbes to largest mammels on globe, the blue whale. With this kind of biodiversity living in aquatics, very little attention was paid till recently when man realized that land is becoming a lilnking factor andproduce from agriculture may not suffice to meet the needs of meet the needs of society. The so made realization gave birth to aquaculture, "the culture of aquatic organisms under controlled conditions". Hence fish (fin fish) along with some other organisms (animal and plant) were selected as good candidates for capture as well as culture to serve as food. The contents are projected in a very simple language, scientific terms explained and discussed for their use in day-to-day life, made to asses the freshness/quality of fish available in market and stage developing larvae after hatching to be selected for introduction in the ponds for culturing are the issues that have been dealt in this book for readers who may happen to be the students of fishery science, casual readers or even house wives interesting in purchase and cooking of fish.
