Dr P. Krishnaiah, CEO, National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB), has called upon rural farmers to take advantage of the knowledge and experience gained from the Asia-Pacific Aquaculture Meet organised in Kochi.

Inaugurating a farmers' meet in connection with the international Aqua meet being held for the first time in India, he said exposure to international practices will help farmers to enhance production and product diversification.

Dr K.R.Viswambharan, Vice-Chancellor, Kerala Agricultural University, said enhancing fish production is pertinent in today's world where food security is a major challenge. The general public needs to be made aware of the nutritive values and medicinal content of fish.

About 300 farmers from different states took part in the farmers meet. Experts from Bangkok, the US, Australia, the Philippines and Norway presented papers, which were instantly translated into regional languages.
