High hopes for marine exports & aquaculture as seafood show concludes

Margao, Goa, Jan 29 (UNI) Crucial first steps for export-oriented organic shrimp production, new strategies to boost aquaculture, and industry inputs for proactive policies for rapid growth of the sector to achieve an export target of USD 10 billion by 2022 marked the three-day 21st India International Seafood Show (IISS) which concluded in Margao in South Goa on Monday.
The biennial show will return in 2020 with Kerala’s commercial hub Kochi hosting the 22nd edition.
IISS 2018, organized jointly by the Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA) and the Seafood Export Association of India (SEAI), drew more than 3,000 delegates, including representatives from 12 countries and over 3,500 business delegates over three days.
The IISS, which visited the West Coast after ten years, renewed calls for the region to catch up with the East Coast, especially states like Andhra Pradesh, who have made leaps in aquaculture and are strengthening their contribution to marine exports.
Union Minister for Commerce and Industry Suresh Prabhu has pledged support to all states exploring aquaculture, while outlining plans to map potential land for culture fisheries using satellite imagery and drawing up a comprehensive marketing and development strategy to boost exports. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who inaugurated the show, also expressed interest in taking cues from AP and training farmers in aquaculture production.
