Heterotrophic based nursery raceways of fifty tonnes capacity are used
for the nursery rearing of shrimps and tilapia fishes.
Azolla is more environmentally friendly as it bind nitrogen directly from air.
The azolla cultured here are used as feed for tilapia.
Pilot scale research works in testing the industrial product as well as to conduct the challenge study FRP tanks, plastic crates and aquarium glass tanks of 40 Nos. are connected to the RAS systems.
Intensive nursery and grow out ponds of 18 Nos. have been developed to undertake research along with the industrial stakeholders.
To cater to the requirement of ornamental fish culture, live feed units such as Daphnia, Monia and copepods are being cultured in 24 FRP tanks of different capacity.
Breeding and rearing of ornamental fishes in the FRP tanks and aquariums has been standardized.
