NEW DIMENSIONS OF BLUE REVOLUTION

India has a coast line of 8118 km, having a huge potential for aquaculture, inland and marine fisheries. Marine Fisheries is the fastest growing food producing sector in the world with great potential to meet the food, especially protein requirement. As per NFDB, India ranked 3ml in fish production and 2nd in aquaculture in the world. Fisheries contribute 1.07 per cent of the total GDP of the country. Further, as per the central plan scheme under the banner of Blue Revolution (Neel Kranti), it has been targeted to enhance the fish production from 107.95 lakh tonnes in 2015-16 to about 15 lakh tonnes by the end of Financial Year 2019-20. It is also expected to augment the export earnings with a focus on increased benefit flow to the fishers and fish farmers to attain the target of doubling their income. This targeted production from fisheries can be achieved by integrated technological interventions from various fields besides blending traditional knowledge and scientific principles.
