Strategies

  • Increase seed production through strengthening of farms & hatcheries
  • Increase production & productivity through aquaculture
  • Ensure hygiene, value addition & marketing by creating infrastructure
  • Creating new employment avenues, awareness & women empowerment through ornamental fish breeding and rearing.
Objectives
  • To increase the inland fish production from the present level of 75,000 mt to 2,00,000 mt and improve the productivity in inland and brackish water aquaculture.
  • To increase the aquaculture production level in ponds and tanks through more effective management techniques.
  • To bring more areas of paddy fields under rice and fish culture/ other wetlands
  • To increase the production of mussel, oyster and crab.
  • To attain additional production from cage/ pen culture in rivers and backwaters through improved stock management and enhance programmes.

Achievements

ü  In 2008-09, inland fish production has been increased from 75,000 mt to 1,50,000 mt.

ü  30 nos. of crab units, 1000 nos. of mussel units, 135 units of seed rearing units were started under the programme.

ü  About 1,01,26,183 nos. of seeds were ranched in open water bodies of various districts.

ü  The Mutualism of rice and shrimp in farming has helped to increase in rice yield to about 15-20 %.

ü  About more than 10,000 SHGs are benefited from the programme.

ü  By strengthening farms and hatcheries, seed production has increased from 300 to 400 lakh/ year.

ü  The share of India in world market of ornamental fishes is less than 0.5%.

ü  By implementing ornamental fisheries project, the export share shall be improved to 5% over a period of 5 years and generate self employment opportunity to 10,000 families.
