    The pristine islands of Lakshadweep need rightful handling of the wastes from its production systems to sustain the ecosystem and the aesthetics of the islands. Fishing is the major economic activity of these islands and processing of fishes produces large quantity of waste. Presently, the waste is buried on the seashore or thrown in open places which pollute the islands besides affecting the aesthetic value of this important tourist destination. The fish waste is an excellent source of protein and many other nutrients which are important raw materials for many useful products. Rightful utilisation of this valuable waste can provide additional income for the households while keeping the islands clean. Considering the above, to begin with, the ICAR-KVK-Lakshadweep designed the training programme in collaboration with the Kavaratti Village Panchayath for orienting the existing micro-enterprises for taking up fish waste utilisation.
