Aquaculture Mission

Meghalaya with its vast inland fishery resources offers tremendous scope for developing the fisheries sector, but lags behind in harnessing the potential of these natural resources. Though the state is predominantly a fish consuming State, the supply of fish is inadequate to meet its growing demand, making the State import fish from Andhra Pradesh. The Government of Meghalaya has identified fisheries as a key sector and has decided to launch the Meghalaya State Aquaculture Mission (MSAM) co-terminus with the Twelfth Five Year Plan period (2012-13 to 2016-17).
