04/12/2014: Indian Government approves new fish-farm in Goa

Encouraged by the outcome of an open sea caged aquaculture project rearing sea bass and cobia in Canacona, the Indian Government has decided to press ahead with a similar project worth over US$2 million in Goa, The Times of India reports

There are at present 25 cages in the open sea off the coast of Canacona taluka; this month the Fisheries Department intends to double that. 

A further project has also been approved for North Goa: 25 open sea cages, 50 river cages and 48 cages in reservoirs, at an estimated total cost of about US$2.3 million. Help will be provided to Goa state by a Central Government financial assistance scheme. 

The plan involves the creation of fully-trained and equipped autonomous groups to run the fish farms. Precise locations for the cages have not been decided, and the finances have yet to be released, but the project is expected to commence in the new financial year.
