Kisan Diwas 2020: Considering the increasing consumption of meat and fish in the country, fisheries are adopting new techniques to boost production. For this, biofloc technology is being adopted to produce more and more fish in less water and less cost. Bioflox technology is a modern and scientific method. By adopting this technique of fisheries, fishermen will not only become the pioneers of the Blue Revolution but will also get relief from unemployment. Through the biofloc technique, farmers will be able to raise fish in a tank without digging the pond.
It is a low cost and limited production space technology. In this technology, the fish’s food and extra food are converted into protein cells by feeding bacteria in the tank system and converting it as food for fish.
Bioflox are algae, bacteria, protozoans, and organic matter such as fishmeal and excess food aggregates. It contains 25 to 50 percent protein and 5 to 15 percent fat. Bioflox are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, especially phosphorus.
* Probiotics may also have an effect on bioflox.
* Bioflox provides two important services – treatment and nutrition of extra-food waste.
* Biofloc systems work with less water exchange (only 5 to 1 percent of water has to be changed per day)
It is necessary to continuously mix and aerate water in a biofloc system.

Rearing fish species
Pangecius, Tilapia, native Mangur, Singhi, Koi carp, Pabda, and common carp.
In addition to producing 3.4 legend fish (value 40 thousand), salable in about six months (rearing cost Rs. 24 thousand) from a 10 thousand liter capacity tank (one time cost Rs. 32 thousand, for 5 years). Income can be obtained. Thus, the annual net profit of Rs. 25 thousand can be obtained from a tank. If expensive fishes are produced, this benefit can be 4.5 times more.
Advantages of Bio Flock Technology
* Work cost, limited space and overproduction.
* Use of unused land and very limited water.
* Freedom from excessive labor costs and the fear of theft.
Why go fishing or get into the fisheries business?
Bio-flock fisheries can prove to be very beneficial in India, as about 60 percent of the population likes to eat fish. The main reasons for increasing demand of fish in India are – firstly, the fish is very tasty and fish is a rich source of protein and vitamins!
In today’s era, people are very conscious about their health, so they prefer to consume fish for their hobbies and health related needs!
For these reasons, the bio-flock fisheries business is growing rapidly and if we talk about agriculture related trades, the share of fisheries industry in the Indian economy is more than about 4.6%!
Prospect or future of fisheries business in India
There is a huge potential for commercial fish farming in India because…
1- 60% of the people in India mainly like to eat fish
2- Due to good quantity of protein in fish, its demand and price always remain good.
3- Due to weather conditions for fish in India, the possibility of any kind of damage is less than other occupation.
4. Many species and sub-species of cultivable fish are easily available in India, which people say with great fervor.
5- You can choose the breed which grows quickly and they get good value from business point of view.
“Under this project initiated by the Government of India, 40 percent grant is given to the beneficiaries of the general category. And the weaker section, which includes women, SC, ST, is given 60 percent grant. Thus 50 There is a provision of 30 lakh rupees (women, SC, ST) on the lac and Rs 20 lakh for the general category. “
