Community Based Livelihood Scheme on Pisciculture

Updated: Sep 1

With financial support of WBSCST & OBC DFC, Govt. of WB, EARDS monitored & supervised the “Community Based Livelihood Pisciculture Scheme for Tribal (SCA to TSP)”.

The scheme was implemented largely through Bolpur Sriniketan, Nanoor, Ilambazar, Rampurhat-l, Suri-ll, Md. Bazar Block Development Office of Birbhum District. Approximately, 620 ST  families from 60 SHGs benefited from this project. We organised a training cum 

awareness programme for their interests. We also distributed fish seed (fingerlings),

fish feed, pisciculture equipment and other necessary materials for fish farming. 

We regularly monitored the project by regular field visit and equipped them with

advisories to maintain the water quality of ponds, fish growth, fish health, disease &

treatment. Now these farmers are able to grow fish and sell in local markets to sustain

self sufficient livelihood.
