    Many fishing/fish farming communities in Kerala are benefitting from the cage culture technologies introduced by ICAR-Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI). In the current year, members of at least 20 families from Pizhala, in Kadamakudy Panchayat of Ernakulam district have done cage farming and about 40 cages (of 4 x 4 m, 6 x 6 m and 8 x 6 m dimensions) were harvested in December 2016. Similarly farmers at Panampukad, Pooyappilly, Chendamangalam etc. have also harvested cage farmed fishes.
