Many hatcheries were established under public sector for seed production and most of the Government hatcheries became defunct due to many reasons, including non-availability of funds for regular maintenance towards renovation/ development. Therefore, to improve the amenities in these hatcheries for production of seed, NFDB has come up with novel scheme to support the Government for renovation/ up-gradation of hatcheries.
- Fish seed hatcheries aged 5 years and above.
- Past performance of the hatchery, fry production capacity, technical feasibility and economic viability for its renovation
- Assurance for budget provision towards the balance funds required for this purpose and working capital costs for subsequent operations
- Positioning sufficient manpower to manage the hatchery
The Unit cost towards repairs and first year input costs shall be Rs.4.0 lakh/unit with production capacity of 7 – 8 million fry per year. Quasi government organizations/Research institutes would be provided with 90% of the unit cost as one time grant.
