The programme is responsible for investigating new and adoptive culture species and techniques for enhanced fish production in ponds, tanks, raceways, and through cage and pen culture. Similarly, the program undertakes studies on the following: integrated aquaculture production in irrigation systems,
-Appropriate seed (fingerlings) production.
-Feed formulation and production.
-Hatchery development and operations techniques.
-Appropriate stocking levels for different production systems.
