    OVERVIEW:                                                                                                                  

    Fisheries and aquaculture remain an important source of food, nutrition, employment and income for millions, especially the rural populations. In fact, the sector provides livelihood to about 25 million fishers and fish farmers at the primary level and twice the number along the value chain. Fish being an affordable and rich source of animal protein, is one of the healthiest options to mitigate hunger and nutrient deficiency. It has immense potential to enhance incomes and usher in economic prosperity to stakeholders. Hence it is essential that sustained and focused attention is given to the fisheries sector through policy and financial support to accelerate its development in a sustainable, responsible, inclusive and equitable manner.

    Fishery sector in Chirang has immense potential in overall development of the district. Aie and Champamoti river traverse through it covering almost 480 Ha of land making the catchment area fertile. There are 465 Ha of ponds and tanks covering interior of villages ranging from varying economic classes of people. Cooperation in all the stakeholders from state and district level is required to utilize and improve the fishery sector in Chirang district.

    a) Harnessing fisheries potential in a sustainable, responsible, inclusive and equitable manner.

    b)Enhancing fish production and productivity of the district by expansion, intensification, diversification and productive utilization of land and water.
