For the successful implementation of the various aspects of fishery development, many aspects are to be taken into account which have been described in the book. Every drop of water contains life and innumerable drops from the aquatic environment. The knowledge of physio-chemical and hydro-biological conditions of water is essential for various aquaculture practices. Fishery development is based on the complex resources which include thousands of fish species having distinct characters and various types of ecosystems in which they have their abode. Though the explosion in advancement in the field of equipment refinenes especially in the field of fishery science has given new dimensions, the basic concepts have not changed, and hence their knowledge is the pre-requisite to undertake the studies in field of fishery development. In the modern industrial and energy based society, huge quantum of effluents are being discharged into the water bodies which are responsible for the decline of fish production and native fish species. As a consequence, welfare states are forced to promulgate the fishery legislation for the proper fish conservation in eco-friendly ways to have the sustainable fish yields. Natural fishery besides providing food to every section of the society, is helpful in various ways. Its use in the control of vectors has encouraged the public health fishery.
