Fisheries and Aquaculture constitute an important economic activity, with a vast potential for sustainably harvesting a wide variety of inland and marine fisheries resources in the country. NFDB, with the guidance of the Department of Fisheries, Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying, has been playing a vital role in enhancement of fish production and productivity in the country and in coordinating fisheries development in an integrated and holistic manner. NFDB has been emphasizing on culture-based capture fisheries, intensive aquaculture and knowledge-based farming.
NFDB has been in forefront in implementing 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. Popularization of genetically improved quality seed has been the primary focused area of NFDB. I am glad to share that NFFBB in coordination with its network hatcheries supplied 227 Crores spawn of improved IMC varieties to the seed growers across India during 2020-21. Read More
