The concept of blue economy is a relatively new acronym in the development literature. Many ponder over the difference that it brings to the mainstream development models which have been in vogue for a long period of time. One can still identify the relevance of blue economy from the angle of the weight it assigns to blue resources in the development process. Blue resources whose universe is not yet defined properly typically cover oceans, rivers, lakes and other forms of water bodies and water-related activities. In precise terms, both freshwater and marine water coverage of a country and the natural resources and activities such as fishing, minerals, aquatic plants, oil, water tourism and leisure, marine biotechnology, deep sea mining of hydrocarbons, thorium, etc and the related activities on land are considered to be the parts of blue economy.
