Jyoti Prabhat Duwora spoke on the importance of the day and urged the farmers to consult the department’s resource persons in developing a fishery project. Presiding over the meeting, Manoj Kumar Borthakur said that the fish producers in the country played a key role in making India the third-highest fish-producing country after China and the Philippines. They have been providing vitally important food nutrients in the form of fish to the common people.

Adidul Haque, a successful fish farmer from Nazira, said that total involvement and supervision are necessary for developing a fishery. Manoj Konwar of Kheluwa shared his years of experience and how he developed a three-bigha plot into an integrated farming project and now a rural resort for tourists. Debendra Deka from Bhatiapar said that adopting a marketing strategy is equally important along with fish production. It is usually overlooked by Assamese farmers. Nripen Saikai, Partha Pratim Neog, and Paresh Gowala of Chintamonigarh said that a flood-resistant fish farming strategy is needed to counter the loss the fish farmers incur in flood-prone areas. Anil Gam (Aphala), Jayanta Gogoi, and Janardan Mahanta from Nazira spoke about their experiences in the sector and the extensive help the Fishery Department has been providing.
