At a time when the excessive growth of aquatic weeds is posing a threat to the ecosystem of the fresh water resources, Ernakulam Krisjhi Vigyan Kendra of Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has launched an initiative of growing fishes in the ponds to tackle the weed menace. The KVK started the innovative technology of growing grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella), a fresh water fish which consumes the aquatic weeds as feeds, to eliminate the aquatic weeds from the fresh water resources. It consumes the weeds as feeds up to the extent of 2 to 3 times of its body weight.
