AQUACULTURE
AQUACULTURE
  • Low cost fish feeds formulated using non-conventional feed resources (pressmud, molasses, poultry hatchery waste, aquatic weeds – Azolla and Spirodela) and feeding strategies for carps developed.
  • Freshwater carp productivity of 3.5-4.0 tonne/ha/yr achieved in inland saline water of salinity below 8 ppt in salt affected waterlogged areas. 
  • Successful brood-stock rearing, breeding and seed production of common carp in inland saline water with salinity up to 8 ppt. 
  • Successful brood stock rearing of catfishes, Heteropneustes fossilis (Singhi) and Clarias batrachus (Indian magur) and channa species and standardization of their breeding technologies. 
  • Culture technologies including overwintering of fresh water prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, under poly house conditions. 
  • Developed package of technologies on brood stock development, captive breeding and larval rearing for egg laying (gold fish & koi carp) and live bearing (platy, molly, swordtail) ornamental fishes. 
  • Fish cum duck farming technology standardized with production level of fish @ 6.0t/ha/yr besides ducklings and eggs. 
  • Development of duckweed based bioremediation technology for recycling of dairy shed waste water for aquaculture where nutrients are recovered in the form of high protein duckweed biomass. 
  • Developed Azolla culture technology for production of high quality aqua-fodder for livestock including fish and ducks.
