Nanotechnology: A novel technique for aquaculture and fisheries development
Chandan Haldar and Suchismita Nath
Nanotechnology is a extremely hopeful technology that spans many areas of science and technological applications. Fast advancements in nanotechnologies and nanosciences in recent years have started novel horizons for many consumer sectors and industrial that have been regarded as the hotbed of a new industrial revolution including agriculture, fisheries and allied sectors. Nanotechnology has a remarkable possible to transform agriculture and allied fields including fisheries and aquaculture. It can offer new techniques for aquaculture, fish biotechnology, fish genetics, aquatic health and fish reproduction etc. Nanotechnology tools like DNA nanovaccines, nanomaterials, nanosensors, smart drug delivery and Gene delivery etc. have the promising to solve many puzzles related to animal health, production, reproduction, prevention and treatment of diseases. It is sensible to assume that in the forthcoming years, nanotechnology research will reform the science and technology and will help boost livestock production. Nanotechnology applications in the fish processing industry can be used to detect bacteria in produce stronger flavors, colour quality, packaging, and safety by increasing the barrier assets. The review of nanotechnology and its applications in aquaculture and fisheries is discussed in this paper.
