|Training on biofloc fish farming|
GUWAHATI, Dec 10 - A two-day training programme is being organised in the city on December 14 and 15 in which fishery expert JP Singh will impart training to the participants on biofloc fish farming, stated a press release.
Biofloc fish farming is an innovating technique under which fish are grown in a closed environment like a tank, which requires a limited amount of water and space. It can also be done in a tarpaulin tank which can be set up in the garden or on the rooftop. It is a cost-effective technique where the waste produced by the fish is again converted into protein-rich feed. Water, too, needs to be refilled only if the scientific water parameters are not maintained.
Biofloc is composed of microorganisms such as bacteria, which help in reduction of ammonia level and make the aqua environment suitable for growing fish in a closed environment, the release stated adding the interested may contact Hemango Bora, coordinator, for details.
