West Bengal: Assistance For Additional Infrastructure To Specific Pathogen Free Shrimp Culture Farms

West Bengal Govt. under National Fisheries Development Board has come up with scheme to provide assistance for basic infrastructure to meet the biosecurity requirements of the shrimp farms in West Bengal. While stocking the SPF shrimp post larvae, shrimp farms need to have the facilities for biosecurity like bird fencing, crab fencing, water treatment ponds, additional aeration, pumping and effluent treatment ponds. Such facilities would help the farmer an assured crop along with increased production.


  • Private sector shrimp farms of minimum of 5.0 ha size (Water spread area) to a maximum of 25.0 hectares (Water spread area) developed into suitable size ponds for culture.
  • Neighboring farmers can join together to establish the additional infrastructure for the SPF shrimp farming.

Quantum Of Assistance:

  • 25% of unit cost (not exceeding Rs.3.75 Lakhs) would be extended as back ended subsidy to private sector shrimp farms of 5.0 ha. (Water spread area) with an ETS area of 10% of the total Water Spread Area (WSA) of the farm.
  • For SC/ST’s the subsidy assistance would be 30% of the unit cost (not exceeding Rs. 4.50 Lakhs).
