Students of Vinoba Bhave University, Hazaribagh, Jharkhand trained on Inland Fisheries Management and Practices

A 7-days training programme was organized at ICAR-Central Inland Fisheries Research Institute for the final year students of Vinoba Bhave University, Hazaribagh, Jharkhand who are pursuing M.Sc. Zoology. A total of 37 students participated in this training programme out of which 31 were female students. This indicates towards more women participation leading to women empowerment in fishery education. Dr. B.K Das, while welcoming the students in a training session, emphasized on the importance of inland fisheries management to ensure the life & livelihood of rural India. The training modules covered on-field exposure visits, field demonstrations and in-house class interactions with the scientists of ICAR-CIFRI including laboratory practical on sediment and water chemistry, fish feed, ornamental fish culture aspects, Recirculatory Aquaculture System (RAS) etc. The interactive sessions involved the present aspects of inland open water fisheries and problems faced by the local fishers. Different topics were discussed thoroughly like fish diseases, soil and water quality, statistics, transfer of technology etc. The support extended by CIFRI library and all the laboratories was mention-worthy in this regard. Exposure visits were arranged for them in East Kolkata Wetland, Live ornamental fish market at Galiff Street, Kolkata, Mathura Beel and ICAR-CIFA Regional Research Centre at Rahara and Field Station at Kalyani. The knowledge gap in regard to delineation of inland water bodies through GIS platform, limno-chemistry of sediment & water, ecology & fisheries of rivers & estuarine ecosystem, enhancement of fisheries in reservoirs and wetlands, pollutants in inland waters, fish diseases and their control in open waters, crafts & gear, importance of SIFS as health food, feed formulation, socio- economics including marketing, would be reduced after completion of the training. Training program of such kinds would be of immense help in developing future road map for the students and selecting their target to be achieved in coming future through concerted effort and endeavour.
