Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) Lohit, Namsai distributed 2,40,000 fish seeds of Indian major carp and exotic carp to 67 fish farmers of 17 different villages under Namsai district. The fingerlings were distributed during a three days demonstration and on-farm trial to develop integrated paddy cum fish culture and post monsoon management of fish culture. The fingerlings were distributed under the guidance of Programme Coordinator (in-charge) of the KVK Dr. Debasis Sasmal with the objectives to introduce integrated fish farming, post monsoon culture of carps, increase fish production and improve rural livelihoods. The KVK has provided the fingerlings to the farmers because of non-availability of quality fish seeds in the district.
