Role of MPEDA in Indian Aquaculture

Aquaculture, also known as aqua farming, is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Aquaculture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions.

MPEDA was given the mandate for development of shrimp/prawn culture for augmenting exports from the country since 1979. MPEDA plans, popularizes and implements various schemes for promotion of export-oriented aquaculture in the country. MPEDA strives to ensure sustainability of aquaculture and make it environmentally friendly.

A Brief History of Marine Products Exports

Till the end of 1960, export of Indian marine products mainly consisted of dried items like dried fish and dried shrimp. Since 1961, the export of dried marine products was overtaken by export of frozen items leading to a steady progress in export earnings. With the devaluation of Indian currency in 1966 the export of frozen and canned items registered a significant rise. Before 1960, the markets of Indian marine products were largely confined to neighboring countries like Sri Lanka, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Singapore etc. when our exports were dominated by dried items. With the development of technology/modernization and export of frozen items , Japan, USA, Europe, Australia, etc. became our important buyers.
