The ranking of India lies the second largest in the world in the production of the freshwater fish which was later been corrected to 10th position by the Fisheries Scientist. Hence, no question should arise to who is the top-ranked and its China.
Prof C. Mohanakumaran Nair, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Kerala University of Fisheries and Ocean Studies, disclosed to PTI that in 2012, China had created 570 lakh huge amounts of fish and marine green growth, which was 63 for every penny of its aggregate aquaculture generation, he said.
Barring marine green growth, China's generation of sustenance angle was 411.08 lakh tons, while India's was 42.09 lakh tons, just around 10%, Prof Nair said.
Counting over the species in India it is been lacking behind China by 90 species on the scale of commercialization.
India is been known as the “Sleeping Giant” because of not harnessing its marvelous potential in the field of fish production, thus Indian Scientist quoted, “Since the year 1991-92 the rate of the marine has gradually been increased from 41.57 Lac Tonnes to 90.40 Lac Tonnes respectively. Thus, a marginal rate of growth is been observed.”
“The count of the marine has been increased up to 36% which led to the rise in about 234% increase in the fish production. Hence, India is been known as the Sleeping Giant,” stated by Nair.
He also stated that “Country does not have any general policies, explaining the effective use of the marine culture including the coastal water bodies.”
As indicated by him, India's national arrangement ought to be centered on expanding generation at all levels other than strengthening approach based aquaculture exercises.
'Indian fish creation is restricted to gets from characteristic water bodies and aquaculture in private lakes and tanks... There is an absence of appropriate approach to rent open water bodies for aquaculture exercises,' the Kerala University lecturer quoted.
He said that this has to grow vertically by expanding the present efficiency of 2.4t/ha to no less than 5t/ha other than bringing increasingly zone under fish culture.
Nair additionally recommended that India embrace the practices followed in China and Vietnam, which he said have helped the two countries enlist quick development in the field.
'Adopting few of the techniques in Vietnam and China which processed the integration of the field including agriculture and the marine culture thus forming an argi-aquaculture which took away the floor projecting marvelous efficiency. Thus, learning about the tactics and technologies from Norway,” he quoted.
Aside from the approaches, Nair said steps ought to be taken to build up the market emotionally supportive network and a productive raw chain in such manner.
'Our market emotionally supportive network is exceptionally poor and we have to build up a proficient raw chain for sheltered and clean taking care of and advertising of fish and fishery items,' he said other than referring to India's marvelous potential in the worldwide fish showcase.
“Thus been the one of the greatest trader globally including their products”, He quoted.
