Arunachal Pradesh, the largest of the Seven Sisters located in the North Eastern region of India (83,743 sq. km.) shares its borders with China and Myanmar in the north and east respectively, Bhutan in the east and Assam and Nagaland in the south. The state has a low temperature regime and very limited plains but ample scope for augmentation of fish production. In collaboration with the Defence Research Laboratory, Tezpur, Assam headed by the Director, Dr. M. P. Chacharkar and supported by the Directorate of Fisheries, Arunachal Pradesh and Arunachal Vikas Parishad, Itanagar, an NGO, a team of scientists and technical staff carrying a mobile chemical laboratory from the Regional Research Centre of CIFA, Kalyani visited remote areas of Arunachal Pradesh to conduct a thorough survey on productivity and assess production of fish in the existing water bodies. The results obtained were analysed and suitable management procedures were designed for maximisation of fish production from the available water area.
Composite fish culture demonstrations
- Pilot scale composite fish culture demonstrations using specific nutrient balance were conducted in 22 ponds covering 2 districts
- Fish production of CIFA demonstration over State FFDA production has increased from 800kg/ha/yr to 4000kg/ha/yr
2015-2016: Demonstration on broodstock development at Sonajuli and Midpu village, Papumpare Dist. - 2 units
- The package-of-practices/technology on ‘Ornamental fish breeding and its culture’ was disseminated to the unemployed youth, breeders and private entrepreneurs and students of North Eastern states of India at Silcher, Assam organised by Assam University and sponsored by MPEDA, Cochin during 24-25 January 2001. There were 30 participants (22 male and 8 females).Same type of programe was also conducted at Agartala, Meghalaya (Shilong) and Arunachal Pradesh (Doimukh).
Integrated Fish culture
Modified technology in nutrient rescheduling in pond soil sediment and water parameters in acidic north eastern Hilly States for Integrated Fish culture resulted increase in production in following States.
- Pilot scale experimentation on Pig-cum fish culture were conducted in 32 locations covering all 16 districts . Fish production achieved 3000 kg to 3500 kg/ha/yr in comparison to earlier average 800 kg/ha/yr
