THE SHRIMP SAGA
Shrimp farming is an age-old practice of growing shrimp for human consumption. It is been practiced centuries ago in Asia where naturally collected shrimp seed from Estuarine areas was released in man-made impoundments along the coastal Wetlands.
The modern shrimp farming began after the successful breeding and seed production technique developed by Dr. M. Fuginaga in the year 1954 followed by Dr. Liao who developed the commercial technology for shrimp farming.
The rise of shrimp farming in India took place after the commercial establishment of OSSPARC & TASSPARC by MPEDA in 1988. Andhra Pradesh became the major hub of shrimp production followed by West Bengal, Gujarat, Odisha, and Tamilnadu.
The shrimp farming in Gujarat began in the year 1992-93 with few ponds in Billimora area but the real beginning started in Surat with four ponds trial at Dandi village under the technical guidance of Dr. Manoj Sharma. The highly successful results from the trials became the main game changer to Kickstart the era of “Blue Revolution” in shrimp farming. The successful association of technique, farming practices & social support from coastal fishers took Gujarat to the world map of shrimp farming.
