Advent of commercial shrimp aquaculture has made more shrimp available to the processing sector, enabling it to make better use of plant capacity and diversify into value-added products. CIBA in its efforts at development of standardized technologies for brackishwater aquaculture has already made a mark both at the marginal farmers' and corporate sector levels. CIBA's PCR kit has been commercialized and has found ready acceptance at the field level while technologies such as low intensity shrimp farming and crab fattening have been accepted by the small farming community especially in the post tsunami days.
