Nearly 60% of the microbially derived drugs are from marine microorganisms. Aquaculture has been now identified as the prime source of future protein needs in the food sector.

The seafood world market has doubled within the last decade reaching US$49.32 billion. India’s share in the world seafood market is 2.4 per cent.
