Synopsis Freshwater prawn farming in India has, to a large extent, been dependent on the supply of wild larvae. Indiscriminate fishing of wild larvae, with high levels of bycatch of juvenile fish and crustaceans, may impact negatively on production and biodiversity in coastal ecosystems. This film addresses the concerns of the environmentalists by showing how an important coastal livelihood can affect marine biodiversity.
