Telangana is set to boost its export-oriented aquaculture, as the government is tying up with the Kochi-headquartered Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA). A memorandum of understanding in this regard was signed by Sandeep Kumar Sulatania, secretary to chief minister, and secretary to animal husbandry, dairy development & fisheries, government of Telangana and K S Srinivas, Chairman, MPEDA at Hyderabad on Thursday.

The 1972-founded MPEDA has signed the MoU for the development of export-oriented aquaculture in the state so as to also promote its fish exports in the next five years. The MOU involves setting up a multi-species aquaculture centre with the state government’s funding. The facility will consist of hatcheries, nurseries and training centres for export-oriented aquaculture species.

  

Telangana is a state in India situated on the centre-south stretch of the Indian peninsula on the high Deccan Plateau. It is the twelfth largest state and the twelfth-most populated state in India with a geographical area of 112,077 km2 (43,273 sq mi) and 35,193,978 residents as per 2011 census. (Wikipedia)

The pact also envisages providing technical assistance to set up an Aquatic Quarantine Facility at Hyderabad Airport through MPEDA society named Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Aquaculture (RGCA), besides extending technical and financial assistance for a chilled and live fish-handling facility at the same place, said a press statement from the orgainsation.

Telangana is known as the Land of Dams, Reservoirs, Lakes, Tanks and Canals and has the most number of Dams, Reservoirs, Lakes, Tanks and Canals than any other South Indian state ►

MPEDA will also assist the Telangana government in formulating a cage culture policy for promoting export-oriented aquaculture in the water bodies of the state. In order to build the capacity of farmers in adopting better management practices, MPEDA will organise the farmers into clusters under the National Centre for Sustainable Aquaculture (NaCSA).

Telangana has the country’s third-largest inland water resource base for fisheries with 77 large, medium and minor reservoirs and as many as 24,189 tanks with 5.7 lakh hectare water spread area suitable for fisheries. Aquaculture is being carried out in more than 1,000-hectare area.
