Brief Introduction

Dr. Meera D. Ansal, joined as Dean of the College of Fisheries, GADVASU on 15th September, 2020. After completing M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Zoology (Specialization: Fish & Fisheries) from Punjab Agricultural University (PAU), she joined as Assistant Professor (Fisheries) in 1999 in the Institute of Agriculture, Regional Centre of PAU at Gurdaspur. She has significantly contributed to teaching, research, extension and institutional development. She has guided 13 M.F.Sc./Ph.D. students and taught over 20 UG/PG courses. Under ICAR’s prestigious Niche Area of Excellence Project (2010-2015), she played an instrumental role in aquaculture development in inland salt-affected waste areas of southwest districts of the State and was conferred with the 'Best Success Story' award by the Indian Ecological Society. She is now working to develop ‘Climate Smart Aquaculture Technologies’ viz., diversification involving intercropping with high-value species, growth-promoting & immuno-stimulating herbal supplements and broodstock management for enhanced aquaculture productivity, without any additional pressure on already depleting multiple-use water/land resources.
Recently, she earned an R&D project entitled “Establishment of Capacity Building Resource Centre for Intensive Aquaculture Technologies in Punjab- Recirculatory and Biofloc Aquaculture Systems” with 100% funding of 1.39 crores under PMMSY Center Sector Scheme (CSS) of Department of Fisheries (DoF), Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying (MoFAHD), GOI, to promote intensive aquaculture technologies in the region. With 12 R&D projects and more than 200 publications including research papers, review articles, manuals, books, booklets, pamphlets and extension articles, to her credit, Dr. Meera has also been conferred with the ‘Honorary Fellowship' of the Indian Ecological Society
