Farmers encouraged to raise seabass

Scientists at Chennai’s Central Institute of Brackish Water Aquaculture (CIBA) have been advising fish farmers to try raising Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer). Scientists believe this venture has great potential to yield a sustainable income for farmers.

The institute has succeeded in inducing the spawning and seed production of seabass, which is a remarkable achievement in the development of captive broodstock.

As well, the seabass seed produced at CIBA’s hatchery in Muthhukadu, near Chennai, has been raised effectively in the ponds of different farmers in three locations, including Ramudupalem in SPSR Nellore district.

Dr A. R. T. Arasu is the chief scientist of the fish culture division at CIBA, and he disclosed these findings at a seminar held to raise awareness about seabass aquaculture among farmers on Friday at the D R Uttahama hotel, Deccan Chronicle reports.

The farming of seabass (known “pandukappa” in Telugu) can yield 4-5 tonnes of fish per ha, Arasu told.

Harvesting takes about six to eight months, and the going rate in the market runs between INR 150 (USD 3.24) and INR 200 (USD 4.32) per kg. Lates calcarifer is the most popular variety in West Bengal and the Southeast Asian countries.

Aquaculture farmers will need to invest between INR 350,000 (USD 7,558) and INR 400,000 (USD 8,637) per ha to set up the project, with revenue returns in the range of INR 600,000 (USD 12,956) to INR 700,000 (USD 15,116). Seabass can be raised in both salt water and fresh water culture.

Dr Arasu said the institute is now prepared to provide farmers with seed and technical input in an effort to help persuade them.

The National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB) was thanked at the meeting for providing funding for the research and development of the seed.

CIBA Director Dr A G Ponnaiah, NFDB Technical Director Dr R Jayakumar and local fisheries wing joint director Muralidhar partook in the programme along with some fish farmers.
