The income of fish farmers is increasing. 1.999 lakh hectare water area is available in the state for fisheries, out of which 1,961 lakh hectare water area has been developed so far, which is 98 percent of the total available water area. The length of the riverine watershed is 3573 kilometers naturally available. Rural pond 1.173 lakh and irrigation reservoir 0.825 lakh hectare water area is available for fish farming.

To promote fisheries in the state, 86 hatcheries, 59 fish seed farms and 647 hectare culture ponds are available for fish seed production. Where fish seed of advanced species is being produced. 330 crore fish seed fry is being produced in the state. The state’s requirement is 143 crores, after meeting the state’s requirement, the remaining 187 crores fish seed is being exported to other states.
