Welcome to Department of Fisheries Anjaw District , Arunachal Pradesh.

Number of schemes benefiting farmers and all round development of rural sector/economy is being implements under CSS and State Plan. Most of the schemes are beneficiary oriented with the objective to raise their economic status and ensure sustainability and sustained income, enhancing task / fish production and availability of quality fish seed.

Introduction

Fish plays a vital role to the nutrition of our ill-nourished millions. Despite being an easily digestible protective food, enjoying the patronage of all sections of society, fish is not contributing to the extent as it is mainly due to the gap between demand and supply. Though fish is a very popular diet, its cost is often prohibitive for the common man to afford. Anjaw District is blessed with vast natural resources for development of capture fisheries, 300 hectares of water area in the forms of rivers, beels, lakes, Swamps with varieties of food value and ornamental fishes and cultural fisheries.In order to tap these resources, the Department of Fisheries is making constant effort by providing various schemes like FFDA, RKVY, SPS, NFWS and apart from this, other schemes like MLALAD, SGSY are being implemented to boost up fish production and ensure its availability on demand and to eradicate un-employment as well as upliftment of poorer sections of the society. With the initiation of various Departmental and allied schemes, the scientific fish culture in Anjaw District has gained momentum amongst the local people who are coming forward to take up the more schemes as a source of their livelihood, income and self employment.The plains and climate of this District also added to viability of fish culture but the fund allocation in comparison to the scope of development is too meager and so also the manpower for proper supervision/monitoring of different schemes involving technical know-how.

However, apart from all these problems, the department of fisheries, Anjaw District, Hawai executed all the approved schemes successfully with physical and financial achievement and even over shooting the physical targets in some cases.

DEVELOPMENT OF COLD WATER FISHERIES:-

Importance of cold water fisheries as a potential source of sustained income coupled with tourism and recreational activities could not be ignored. Of late its importance in overall development of aquaculture/ fishery in the state have duly been recognized. Literally speaking this sector is still in infancy and requires tremendous efforts to revamp the existing infrastructure facilities of Govt. farms, hatcheries and raceways etc. Constant refining of culture and breeding techniques and dissemination of proven technology to the farmer needs to be encouraged for production of quality trout seed and table fish. Fish farmers in principle have accepted trout culture but owing to their poor economic condition much headway in this sector couldn’t be made. Trout Culture in the higher belts is restricted in Tawang and West Kameng district and that too in govt. sector only.

PROGRESSIVE FISH FARMERS/ STAKEHOLDER MEET:-

It is proposed to provide a platform to progressive fish farmers and other stakeholders to participate and exchange their experiences and interact with experts. lt will also help in disseminating information and technology with exposure. This in turn will give momentum to fisheries activities and will help in planning process and outlining strategies for future course of action basing on the inputs from the stake holders meet. In the year 2016-17 2 (Two) nos progressive Fish Farmers also awarded on the occasion of Independence day celebration by the Department of Fisheries, Anjaw District, Hawai.

BLUE REVOLUTION – NEEL KRANTI MISSION:-

Schemes under FFDA hitherto restructured for implementation in a Mission mode for a period of five years starting 2015-16 to 2019-20. The Neel Kranti Mission has the vision to achieve economic prosperity of the country and the fish farmers and fishers as well as contribute towards food and nutritional security through full potential utilization of water resources for fisheries development in a sustainable manner. lt focuses on tapping the full potential and enhance productivity, sustainability from aquaculture and fisheries resources and to ensure doubling of income of fishers and fish farmers.

CONSTRUCTION OF NEW FISH PONDS AND TANKS:-

Till now aquaculture is confined to homestead domestic ponds. Production from the pond is consumed locally without being surplus for marketing. Domestic fish pond doesn’t sustain livelihood. Concepts of commercial fish farming have been introduced in recent past with development of minimum 0.5 ha. water area. Such farming ensures livelihood, enhanced production and sustained income. More earning from such venture will improve economic stability and social status of the farmers.

RENOVATION OF EXISTING FISH PONDS:-

A large number of ponds have been constructed under various beneficiary oriented programme from different schemes. Because of unexpected nature’s fury and economic backwardness of the farmers many ponds are left unutilized. With little effort and investment same can be rejuvenated and made functional which will have great impact on production and available, of table fish in the state.
