Giving a fillip to fish production in the country, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute will focus on popularising mariculturein all maritime States. In its annual review meeting, the All India Network Project on mariculture (AINP-M) formulated an action plan to develop and popularise marine grow-out systems, farmer-friendly hatchery technologies for commercially important fishes, and establishment of a centre of excellence in mariculture research. Coordinated by CMFRI, AINP-M is a major research programme with a financial outlay of ₹42 crore, with centres from all maritime States to strengthen mariculture initiatives. Apart from the three species — cobia, seabass and pompano — for which commercial hatchery production is currently available, CMFRI is in the process of developing technologies for three more marine species. CMFRI director A Gopalakrishnan said due importance would be given to popularise farming technologies and conducting demonstrations in farmers’ fields. At a time when capture fisheries production is stagnating, mariculture can be considered as the only option to meet the ever-increasing demand for marine food products. The open sea-cage farming method developed by CMFRI is one of the best farming models, and it can be effectively popularised among fishermen, Gopalakrishnan added.
