Reviewing the progress of fish production, state chief secretary Gokul Chandra Pati directed officials to develop fishery clusters in the state and enhance growth to 20 %in the coming year.

Pati said 20% growth can be achieved through adoption of appropriate technology, technical assistance to fish farmers and bringing more areas under fish cultivation. He advised the department to instruct all district fishery officers to follow up on new fishery projects and ensure their successful operation.

The department was asked to promote 16 fishing clusters in Ganjam, Puri, Jagatsingpur, Kendrapara and Bhadrak districts.
