Among the three types of technologies available in the fisheries sector in India, seaweed farming, initiallypromoted as a livelihood option, has emerged as the one area which probably has the maximum potentialfor up-scaling. This paper has examined the structure, conduct and performance of the value chain inseaweed farming in India inquiring into the production, institutional, marketing, social and communityrelationships in small-scale seaweed farming in the Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu and the conceptof self-help groups (SHG) as an increasingly workable option for coastal resources management. Thevalue chain analysis of the sector has substantially proved that committed and synergistic production,marketing and institutional arrangements enabled by corporate leadership, offers considerable savings intransaction costs. The SHG model has also shown strong gender orientation in the initial years of seaweedculture in the district contributing to strong structural foundations to the movement. The seaweed sectorin the coastal India has all the potential to rise from the low-income conditions normally associated withbasic livelihood activities to higher levels of employment-income-consumption relationships.
