CMFRI, Library (2017) CMFRI’s recirculating aquaculture system to help fish production The Hindu dated 30th January 2017. The Hindu.
The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has set up a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) at its Vizhinjam Research Centre to boost seed production for commercially important marine fishes. × Sea cage farming The system filters water inside a fish tank, helping to reuse the water. It will be beneficial to brood stock development of marine fishes. The CMFRI set up an RAS tank with a capacity of 30,000 litres, with an aim to popularise sea cage farming, said a press release here. Farmer-friendly technology Inaugurating the facility, Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Sudarshan Bhagat said farmer-friendly technologies should be developed to attract people to fish farming. “In order to solve issues in the fisheries sector following the decline in the availability of fishes from the sea, steps should be taken to improve facilities and technologies for boosting fish production through alternative ways,” the Minister said.
