Workshop to promote fisheries

Jorhat, Nov. 24: Assam Agricultural University is organising a two-day workshop on Prioritisation of Research and Education for Fisheries Development in North East India on its campus here from Monday, in collaboration with Central Institute of Fisheries Education, Mumbai.

Bibha Chetia Borah, senior scientist, fisheries research centre of the university and local convener of the workshop’s organising committee, said the region had enormous potential for development of the fisheries sector, as it has vast water resources and rich bio-diversity.

Borah said it was expected that the workshop would help develop a road map for sustainable development of the fisheries sector. Basanta Das, state minister of fisheries, is scheduled to inaugurate the workshop. K.M. Bujarbaruah, vice-chancellor, Assam Agricultural University, will also be present.
