    In December 1996, the Supreme Court had to step in to protect the coas

    Authority Act (Act 24 of 2005) and Central Government has framed the

    In India, the 8100 km-plus coastline and the vast areas adjacent to estua

    lagoons provide enormous opportunities for aquaculture. The favour
