BSFF integrated shrimp pilot project in Dumuria, Khulna
Bangladesh Shrimp and Fish Foundation (BSFF) has taken an initiative to introduce a cluster base pilot project of black tiger shrimp farming at Rodughara (Bil Khoksia) union, Dumuria, Khulna. The pilot project was jointly implemented by the Fishery Products Business Promotion Council (FPBPC)of the Ministry of Commerce, Bangladesh, Department of Fisheries (DoF), and the Bangladesh Shrimp and Fish Foundation (BSFF). For technical support, Fishtech Ltd is currently working as a technical assistant.
Earlier this year, the cluster base pilot project already comprised 34 ponds of the 39-acre area of land including 9 cluster members. Primarily broods are collected from specialized SPF hatcheries. The first harvest is ready to collect from the pilot project despite many other challenges faced.
