In order to meet the growing demand for fish a new technology has been introduced in India by the farmers and now it is been replicated in many parts of the country.
In Tripura, it has been introduced by the innovative farmers without the help of any govt. organization. Mr. Sukanta Deb of Khowai may be the first person who installed a working setup of biofloc with three tanks at his backyard.
The initiative by Mr. Deb can be considered as the best example for the youth of our region for self-employment with limited resources.
The initial investment of the technology is not so high and payback period for the investment is less than a year if done correctly.
Mr. Deb has started with three tanks and three species mainly Pabda, Singhi and Vietnamese Koi. However, setup for Vietnamese koi has failed due to diseases and improper management.
He has encountered some disease problem and get it corrected with the help of some antibiotics (not recommended). Presently, he is getting some good growth as a first trial and the technology may require some standardisation for the region.
