Aquaculture Technologies Implemented by NFDB
To enhance fish production by sustainably utilizing the existing and potential resources, Govt. of India launched the ‘Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS) on Blue Revolution: Integrated Development and Management of Fisheries’. NFDB as the implementing arm of the Department of Fisheries, Govt. of India, is mandated to realize the untapped potential of fisheries sector that includes inland and marine capture and culture, processing and marketing besides accelerating the growth of the sector. Keeping the above said objectives in view, NFDB has taken up itself to directly implement across the country some of the key projects based on available technologies by facilitating their transfer from ‘Lab to Land’ so as to fast track the overall fish production and productivity as envisaged in the Blue Revolution Scheme.
