MINI-CAGE

Cage based aquaculture system involves the growing of fishes in existing water resources, while fishes are enclosed in a net cage which allows the free flow of water and a controlled farming system. A fish cage is easy to set up and the fish can grow up quickly. The fish cage is usually not large. Generally, cage fisheries are installed in large water bodies and reservoirs for fish farming. Jaljeevika has designed and tested the efficiency of a mini casein pond to enhance productivity & earn a better livelihood.
