  • Fish farming or pisciculture is not a new concept for India or Assam. From time immemorial, fish has been associated with socio-economic life of the people of both Assam and India. Fish satisfies the nutritional demand of the people and generates income and employment for the rural people. At present, it is the second-largest growing farming industry in India. In the case of inland fish production, the country occupies the second position in global fish production after China. Many states of India have started fish farming as an alternative occupation of agriculture. Assam is no exception to this. Many unemployed youths have started fish farming in their land, rented/land on lease. It helps to fulfill a portion of the domestic demand of the state.In this paper, we try to examine the trend and growth of fish production and seed production in India and Assam. In addition, we are trying to find out a comparative analysis of both Assam and India.

  • Key words: Fish farming, Pisciculture, Land on lease.
