Indian Fisheries sector has shown tremendous progress in last 50

years. Present Fish production in the country is more than 6 million tones out

of which more than 50 % is contributed by Inland Fisheries sector. The Fisheries

sector has shown steady growth rate of more than 7 % per annum.South Gujarat is endowed with 300 km. long coastline, very high

rainfall and low outfall conditions with as many as 11 perennial rivers, 16

large reservoirs, hundreds of tanks and ponds is a predominantly fish

producing area providing livelihood to 5 lakh families. This region contributes

about 2/3rd of total Inland fishery production especially those of high value

fishes like Catla, Rohu, Mrigal, Catfishes and Prawns. About 90 % of

freshwater fish seed production through 8 hatcheries being carried out by South

Gujarat region. There are large numbers of village ponds available in South

Gujarat which are being currently utilized only for minor irrigation and

domestic purpose. However the productivity of both Marine as well Inland

Brackish/Freshwater fishes is not up to the mark. Moreover about 78% of

suitable brackishwater area of Gujarat (89,000 ha) for shrimp culture is

available in south Gujarat. More than 90% of the total shrimp cultivating area

of Gujarat is being occupied by south Gujarat only (4500 ha). Thus this region

has potential to emerge as aquaculture hub in inland and brackishwater sector

fisheries. In future if brackishwater potential area put under shrimp cultivation

(70,000 ha) there will be high needs of fisheries technocrats, skilled fisheries

personnel and advanced technologies. To mitigate this education, research and

extension activities are the only effective tools.The fisheries entrepreneurs look towards the University for technological

guidance especially for aquaculture, timely diagnosis and control of outbreaks

of diseases like white spot disease of shrimps, EUS of Carps etc. which play

havoc with the economy of fishery enterprise.
