NaCSA is working towards making Aquaculture Sustainable activity to improve livelihoods of Coastal villagers, with an “Self Help Group” approach, International Markets to address Food safety and other market Concerns through collaborative approach of all Stake Holders involved.
NaCSA started grouping these farmers into societies and educated them on better management practices (BMP) for safe and sustainable shrimp farming. NaCSA also trained these farmer societies to follow cluster approach in shrimp farming. Cluster refers to interdependent aquaculture ponds often situated in a specified geographical locality and in close proximity to each other with the following characteristics:
- Sharing resources or infrastructure (e.g. water sources or effluent discharge system).
- Having the same production system.
- Involving the same candidate species
Message from Chairman
I have great pleasure in welcoming you to the revamped NACSA website
National Centre for Sustainable Aquaculture (NaCSA) National Centre for Sustainable Aquaculture (NaCSA) was established by MPEDA in the year 2007 as an outreach organization for uplifting the livelihood of small-scale shrimp farmers.
The seafood exports from the country have been on a path of exponential growth, over the years. The marine products are currently exported from India to more than 100 countries. The country has vast resources in the form of coastline and pristine quality waters with abundant fishery resources to promote culture as well as capture fisheries for safe and sustainable fishery production. The marine products export is targeted to reach Rs. 1 lakh crore by 2025, and MPEDA has already submitted a road map to achieve the objective encompassing the interventions required in the production, value addition and market promotion of seafood.
We have tried our best to put in maximum information in this site and have attempted to make it more user friendly. I invite you to go through each page and savour the information packs and videos useful on the seafood sector. We are also open to your critical review and suggestions to improve the efficacy of the site further. If you require more information, please do feel free to contact us.
I welcome you to Nacsa MPEDA for any assistance in seafood export trade
