ACTIVITIES OF JAGATSINGHPUR DISTRICT
Development of Inland Fisheries :
In addition to the above resources, the dead river , water logged area,
& low lying areas in the district comprises of 776 ha., 520 ha. and 793 ha. respectively.
Aim and Objective :
In view of the State Fisheries draft Policy aiming at doubling the fish
production and draft vision 2020 the critical gaps have been planned to be
bridged in the district by providing the fish farmers with adequate quality fish
seed as against the current demand of 170 lakhs. In this attempt to produce
quality carp seeds one Chinese Circular Hatchery was established at Naradia
under Balikuda Block with assistance from the DRDA Jagatsinghpur under SGSY
Infrastructure Scheme during the year 2006-07.
Further, in order to put the unutilized water area to the tune of 776 ha.
in shape of dead rivers to the fold of scientific pisciculture one resource
inventory survey was conducted by the Fisheries Deptt. and it was revealed that
the Govt. land in Alaka dead river stretching within Naradia village of Balikuda Block was suitable to develop a
hatchery complex with the breeder tanks on the bed of the river itself.

was 120.5 lakhs during 2006-07 .Till 31.08.2007 , 120 lakhs spawn has already
been produced against the target of 120 lakhs during the current year.
One fish seed nursery farm has been
established at Alipingal of Jagatsinghpur district. The total project cost of
Rs.4.12 lakh funded under SGRY Scheme. The total farm area
Ac.4.00 with production capacity of 70 lakh in 2 crops. During the year
2006-07 , 104.75 lakh spawn was stocked and 10.98 lakh fish seed has been
distributed inspite of washingout
of the crop due to high flood water . During 2007-08,
97 lakhs of spawn have already been stocked and 13.42 lakh seed has been
distributed till 31.08.2007.
The 2nd fish seed nursery
farm has been established in Kulasahi of Raghunathpur Block of area 1 Ac. The
project cost is Rs. 2.00 lakhs funded under SGRY Scheme during 2006-07. During
2006-07, 48.50 lakh spawn were stocked and 9.46 lakh seed was distributed . In
the year 2007-08 , 38.50 lakh spawn was stocked and 1.77 lakh fry has already
been distributed till 31.08.2007.
The 3rd fish seed farm has
been developed at Arakhapari of Naugaon Block during 2006-07. The total farm
area developed is 0.24 Ac. During 2006-07 , 13.50 lakhs of spawn were stocked
and 0.96 lakhs seed were sold inspite of washingout of the crop due to high
flood. During 2007-08, till date the farm has not been stocked due to absence of
desired water level.
(d)Prawn Seed Supply
the target of 5500MT of fish production from fresh water during the year 2006-07
, 5620.13 MT has been achieved. Up to 31.08.2007 only
1182.26 MT of fish production has been recorded during 2007-08.
the target of 1700 MT Shrimp production during 2007-08 1110.6
MT shrimp production has been recorded till
(g)Long Term Lease of GP Tanks
the target of 240 nos. of GP tanks for approval 125 tanks have been approved for
a period of 5 years to 125 SHGs during the year 2006-07. Action is being taken
for sponsoring LTL of GP tanks for 5 years for the year 2007-08 and two tanks
covering an water spread area of 0.72 ha has been approved.
the target of 10 MT of prawn production during 2006-07 , 6.70 MT of freshwater
prawn was produced from cultured tanks.Besides103.83 MT
prawn was produced from swamps, Bheels , Rivers and canals during
2006-07. In the year 2007-08, 7.15MT and

trained for ten days by FFDA Jagatsinghpur.
has been taken by the DRDA , Jagatsinghpur

one SHGs with 151 women beneficiaries were trained at 3 camps during 2006-07.
the target of 120 persons 120 beneficiaries were trained during the year 2006-07
(k)Short Term Loan on Pisciculture:
Fish Seed Supply :
Though it has been a eye-opener in the dead river development programme
and remarkably the spawn production has been made since the very year of
inception, and revenue deposited in Govt. exchequre ; several constraints have
been observed as detailed below.
The massive weed infestation removal
was a big challenge in terms of financial involvement as well as subsequent fish
health management due to release of trapped obnoxious gases like hydrogen
sulphide and ammonia.
The drainage of surplus water from the
catchment areas during rainy season was ensured by creation of one drainage
channel which is yet to be completed failing which it may cause stagnation
of huge quantity of water and man-made flooding.
The arrangements for providing potable
water for use in the hatchery by bore well with submersible
pump for smooth hatching operation has not yet been made which has caused
undue delay in taking up breeding during last year and this year.
The barbed wire fencing work proposed to be taken up very soon can help
avoid trace passing and prevent poaching.
The district level Resource
centre cum-Information kiosk proposed to be developed on the first floor of
the hatchery roof is yet to take its shape in terms of physical progress.
The addition of species like Grass carp, Silver carp and Chinese carp in
the seed bulk presently under production can definitely increase interest of the
fish farmers of the district in terms of production from unit water area. For
this purpose, necessary provision of funds may be made so as to add sufficient
brood fishes of the above fish species.
The temporary pipe line laid by the
RWSS for taking in water from the branch canal has been taken away due to the
transfer of their staff has stopped intake of water and no water was available
during the breeding programme this year.
of the Stocking tank no-1 with the
demarcation of the outer embankment and strengthening of the same with stone
of two more Stocking tanks for use as
segregation tanks will be of good use to the farm in terms of pre-breeding
of the two other nursery tanks by
dressing and turfing and addition of two more nursery tanks in the available
stretch of Govt. land.
