1. Guidelines for Implementation of Fisheries Scheme under the National Mission for Protein Supplements (NMPS) in States during-2011-12.

The Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India will implement a National Mission for Protein Supplements (NMPS) in identified states during financial year 2011-12, at an outlay of Rs 300 crore (Rupees Three Hundred croer) of which Rs. 100 crore (Rupees One Hundred crore only) has been earmarked to encourage fisheries development in the following areas.

(i). Reservoir Fisheries Development.

(ii). Intensive Aquaculture in ponds & Tanks.

  1. Reservoir Fisheries Development:

The States viz; Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bihar, Orissa, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharastra and Tamil Nadu are identified initially to avail fund under this component. Concerned States are expected to select one or two reservoirs in their respective States considering their potentials. States would be given 100% Grants for undertaking the following activities.

(i). Cage culture (size of cage 6x4x4M)

(ii). Fish seed rearing in pens and

  1. Creation of other post harvest infrastructure facilities such as fish landing

Jetties, ice plant, boats, refrigerated trucks and marketing facilities.

Since, most of the reservoirs are being managed by the Fisherman Cooperative Societies the project may also be implemented through the Fisherman Cooperative Societies or through PPP on 50:50 cost sharing basis wherever feasible under the supervision of state Fisheries Department .The Dept. of Fisheries of the respective States would be the nodal agency for implementation. A project implementation cell would be established by involving Members from DAHDF, NFDB, concerned State Fisheries Dept. and ICAR institute.

Duration of implementation :18 months

Expected fish production per cage 10 tonnes

Number of cages proposed (18 reservoirs x 2 batteries =36 batteries and each battery with 24 cages): 8640 tones

  1. Intensive Aquaculture in ponds & Tanks:

Intensive Aquaculture in ponds and tanks is the major contributor and accounting to more than 70% of the inland fish production. Apart from technology intervention to enhancing the area under intensive aquaculture by another 50.000 ha besides creating critical infrastructure in terms of fish seed production and rearing facilities and feed mills. As this is a farmer driven activity it is proposed to extent financial for construction of fish ponds involving fish farmers who are trained in undertaking scientific aquaculture through capacity building utilizing resources of CSS of DAHDF and NFDB schemes. Since it is a participatory activity a subsidy of 40% cost of pond construction and input cost with a unit cost of Rs. 4 lakhs per ha could be considered for promoting this activity in an areaof about 3.500 ha per year at the rate of 500 ha per state initially in 7 states namely Jharkhand, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharastra, Karnataka and Orissa. A minimum of one Ha and a maximum of 5 ha could be supported for each farmer to undertake intensive aquaculture. Cluster farming comprising two or more farmers should be encouraged to enable creation of common facilities.

  1. Unit cost for development of one Ha pond with input cost: Rs.4.00 lakhs

  2. Total area to be developed in each State : 500Ha.

  3. Total area to be developed in seven State : 3500Ha.

  4. Percentage of subsidy proposed : 40%

  5. Total fund required for developing 3500Ha Rs. 5600 lakhs

  6. Expected additional average production :5T/ ha/annum

  7. Expected fish production in one year :17000T/annum

  1. National Mission for Protein Supplements (NMPS) is a sub-component of Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) and thus it would be implemented as per the procedure/guideline of RKVY. All the identified States are requested to submit the self contained proposals as per the guideline to the RKVY cell of the respective State consideration by the State Level Sanction Committee (SLSC) headed by the Chief Secretary of the State.
