Excerpt: Penaeid prawn culture in pens was first tried out by BOBP in Killai, India, in 1982. At that time there were no known reports of such a production system being tried out anywhere else. It was believed that if successful it could become a small-scale, part-time, activity possibly householdbased. It would require much less initial capital investment than conventional pond-based culture and would be less risky. Also, suitable land for pond construction is rare or often not available to small-scale fisherfolk communities; by contrast, the shallow coastal lagoons of India and Sri Lanka are considered suitable for pen construction.
