The first edition of “A Text Book of Fish, Fisheries and Technology”, covering the basic ideas and initial progress made in freshwater, brackish water and marine fisheries, together with the pre- and post- harvesting technologies was published in 1990. The updated second edition of the book was subsequently published in 1996. In the mean time (in last 14 years), lots of advancement, such as diversification of aquaculture both for higher unit yield (in mono-sex farming), covering newer species for commercial aquaculture and adoption of new culture technology (cage culture etc.) have been taken place. Modernization of Indian fishing fleet to exploit deep sea fishery resources commercially and shifting over to harvest pelagic and semi-pelagic fishery resources commercially in certain regions of Indian coasts is another recent advances in Indian marine fisheries sector. Advanced methods of post-harvesting technology was adopted by many of the modern fishing unit for export of quality products. All these advances have been covered in the third edition of the book after renaming it as “Advancement in fish, fisheries and technology”, which included the advanced diagnostic methods, now adopted for detecting diseases and modern preventive measures. Marine ornamental fish culture is given special attention for higher export earnings.
