Aquaculture - Fish Farming Solutions
The term aquaculture covers all forms of farming of aquatic animals and plants in freshwater, brackish water and salt-water. Even though aquaculture may seem to us like a relatively new scientific venture it has a very long history which can be traced back to 3500 B.C in China.
We provide all kinds of viable solution for aquaculture, right from project reports to the installation and commissioning of the project. We can do all aquaculture related projects on turnkey basis and delivered all across India.
Fish farming is one of the best ways to improve the productivity of your land. Aquaculture has common objective as agriculture i.e, controlled production and harvesting of food to improve the supply for the consumption of society.
Fish is an important source of nutrients such as vitamins A, Vitamin B and Vitamins D, calcium, iron and iodine. So even in small quantities, fish can have a positive effect on the overall health and nutrition of humans. Therefore fish is included as part of the daily diet all around the world.
The major difference between Agriculture and Aquaculture is that in aquaculture we are dealing with water instead of Soil/sand. And farming in water needs a different set of knowledge and skill set.
In other words, the method, technology and types of equipment used are very different but the goal and sole purpose are the same as of agriculture.
Due to overfishing, pollution and global warming the sea is becoming less productive year after year. Aquaculture is the only way by which we can make up this difference and meet the fish demand.
Aquaculture can help the sea recover from these effects and also employ people thereby providing a huge support to our countries economy.
Aquaculture can be conducted in a wide range of environments from freshwater to marine water, in simple ponds or even in high-tech indoor recirculation systems. it is important to understand the system we use very well otherwise it may lead to economic losses.
These can be prevented by proper training and correct aquaculture methods. The following are varieties of fish that can be successfully cultivated and harvest through aquaculture.
In Kerala an enormous variety of water bodies, including rivers, irrigation canals, lakes and ponds that can be utilized for fish farming.
To make the venture successful, it is very important to focus on species that are easy to care for, maintain and that can live with available resources (e.g. natural habitat, feed, including household waste).
Infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses and parasites is a major concern in aquaculture which may lead to the loss of stock. The one and the only way to prevent the spread of diseases is by adhering to best practices in the handling of fish and keeping the premises clean and tidy.
Through aquaculture, we can produce protein and nutrient-rich fish food throughout the year.
