According to reports, more than 200 exhibitors from abroad are expected to take part in a knowledge and technology conference on fisheries to be held here from March 15, 2018.

The three-day knowledge and technology conference on fisheries is expected to attract more than 200 exhibitors from foreign countries, SIFA president V Ramachandra Raju said in a statement. According to the organisers, the fisheries sector provides employment, income and livelihood for about 14.5 million people in the country. The fish production in India has increased from 0.75 mmt in 1950-51 to about 10.79 mmt in 2016-17. Production over the years has shifted from capture fisheries to aquaculture, they said.

“Though the Indian fisheries and aquaculture is growing steadily over the years, the industry needs support in terms of new technologies and species, quality inputs, efficient equipment, better services, quality manpower and marketing to further increase the fish production,” Raju said.

Through the event, the organisers are seeking to create a global platform for Indian fisheries and aquaculture players to access the latest technologies, services and equipment, he said.

“We would like to encourage new entrepreneurs to venture into this sector. We are hopeful we will be able to contribute to the growth of the industry and aqua consumption,” stated Chandrappagari.
