One of the major tasks accomplished by the CAA was the registration of shrimp farms on the recommendations of the State and District Level Committees constituted for this purpose.  It is mandatory that all persons carrying on coastal aquaculture shall register their farm with the Coastal Aquaculture Authority.  Registration is made for a period of five (5) years, which can be renewed further. The registration process would be continued in respect of new farms as well as farms that may be renovated for taking up coastal aquaculture activities in future
