The states of Tripura and Assam have been utilizing water bodies for the purpose of pisciculture, according to recent reports. These efforts are aimed at promoting the cultivation of fish and other aquatic animals, and boosting the income of local fishermen and farmers.
The government of Tripura has been promoting the use of water bodies for pisciculture through various schemes and initiatives. The state has identified over 3,000 water bodies that are suitable for pisciculture and has provided financial assistance to farmers and fishermen to set up fish farms.
Similarly, in Assam, the government has been encouraging the use of water bodies for pisciculture through the development of infrastructure and provision of subsidies. The state has set up fish seed farms and hatcheries, and has also provided training and technical support to farmers and fishermen.
These efforts have led to a significant increase in the production of fish and other aquatic animals in both states. According to government officials, the use of water bodies for pisciculture has not only boosted the income of local farmers and fishermen, but has also helped to meet the growing demand for fish in the region.
However, some experts have raised concerns about the potential environmental impact of large-scale pisciculture, such as the use of chemicals and antibiotics, and the impact on natural habitats and biodiversity.
