West Bengal: Scheme For Production Of Big Sized Fish In Large And Medium Water Bodies Under NMPS

The State of West Bengal is enriched with beel fisheries, sewage fed fisheries having variable sizes which are mostly under the administrative control of State Government. Farmers having own water bodies or on lease basis are doing pisciculture in water pond fisheries. These water bodies offer immense scope for production of big sized fish with reasonable investment. So Fisheries Department, West Bengal Government has launched an innovative scheme known as Scheme for Production of Big Sized Fish in Large and Medium Water Bodies under NMPS (National Mission for Protein Supplement).

Objectives:  

  • To produce big sized fish with the application of partial formulated artificial feed considering maximum utilization of natural feed
  • To enhance productivity from 1000 – 1500 kg to 2500 – 3000 kg/ha/year from large water bodies.
  • To enhance productivity from 2500 – 3000 kg to 4000 – 4500 kg/ha/year from medium water bodies.
  • To involve Fishermen Co operative Societies/ Self Help Groups/Fish Production Groups as beneficiaries To uplift economic condition of the beneficiaries
  • To effectively demonstrate the improved technology and practice for improving productivity and production in the sector.

Target Beneficiaries:

  • Fishermen Co operative Societies (FCS)
  • Self Help Groups (SHG)
  • Fish Production Groups (FPG)
  • Fisheries Corporation/Govt. Farms

Pattern of Assistance:

For Medium Water Bodies: Total schematic cost per unit: Rs. 711,000

  1. Funding Under NMPS:
  • 287,000 which is 40% of total schematic cost and this assistance will be provided to the beneficiary in the form of farm machineries/equipment and input like CIFA brood feed.
  1. Contribution of Beneficiary:
  • 424,000 which is 60% of total schematic cost.

For Large Water Bodies: Total schematic cost per unit: Rs. 1,185,000

  1. Funding Under NMPS:
  • 470,000 which is 40% of total schematic cost and this assistance will be provided to the beneficiary in the form of farm machineries/equipments and input like CIFA brood feed.
  1. Contribution of Beneficiary:
  • 715,000 which is 60% of total schematic cost.
