Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) signed for commercialization of the technology-‘Process for manufacturing of ornamental fish feed’


Director (A), ICAR-CCARI congratulated the entrepreneurs for entering into this MoA and also highlighted the need for translating the research into potential technologies and to final products and services useful for farming community. The process for manufacturing of Ornamental Fish Feed technology has commercial values owing to the fact that the developed feed is a sinking type pellet feed which is suitable for rearing fish in community aquarium tanks, Fibre-reinforced Plastic tanks and cement tanks. This feed can be prepared from locally available materials for feeding ornamental fishes which will also give better growth performance in freshwater ornamental fishes. This pellet feed is highly palatable and can be used for most of the common freshwater ornamental fishes. The technology was developed and refined by the Scientists of the Fisheries section of the Institute and the Institute Technology Management Unit facilitated the process of bringing together the stakeholders for signing MoA.
