'Ornamental fish production profitable'

He was speaking at the inauguration of the workshop on ‘Ornamental fish production and marketing’ organised jointly by Fisheries Department and Vijaya Bank Self-employment Training Centre here on Monday.

Even though ornamental fish production is ignored in the country, he said that the demand for it is very high. It will be profitable to undertake ornamental fish production at homes.
The aquarium business is increasing in profitability. With a turn over of around $ 600 crore, ornamental fish production in the State is dependent on other states, he said.

He said that free training will be provided to interested persons.  Apart from this financial assistance will be given, which can be useful for youth and unemployed.
