Nearly 6.9 lakh metric tonnes of fish production was recorded during the financial year 2019-20 in the state.
According to the government spokesman, UP has been selected as the best northern state for the successful operation of fish farming schemes and fish production in the state last year.
The fish Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) of Barabanki district was implemented across the country which provides a constant and controlled environment for the fish, allowing for optimal and fully manageable production of African catfish, Tilapia, and other fish species.
“The youth the state is showing keen interest in this scheme and have registered their names to be part of the ‘Blue Revolution’. This will not only create employment opportunities but will also result in better resource management, greater work opportunities, and reduced waste, as young people are more inclined to adopt new technologies and techniques,” the spokesman said.
Under the ‘Blue Revolution’, the Yogi Adityanath government has given a boost to fish production keeping in view the potential of the sector and the nutritious qualities of the fish. The government is also providing protection to the fishermen community associated with this business.
