This opening chapter briefly describes the origins of modern freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) culture. It continues by recording official and unofficial production data, which emphasise the scale and importance of the sector in many countries at the beginning of the third millennium. Finally, this chapter summarises a personal view of the future for freshwater prawn farming. Although national and global production data are provided in this chapter, detailed current commercial practices in the various producing countries are described in Chapter 17.
