BHUBANESWAR: Balasore was awarded the best marine district in the country. For the first time, a district in Odisha received this award.
The Minister of the Union of Fisheries, Livestock and Dairy, Parshottam Rupala, presented this award at the celebration of World Fisheries Day here on Sunday.
Andhra Pradesh received the award for the best marine state, while the award for the best inland state went to Telangana. Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh received the award for the best inland district and the awards for the best mountain and north-eastern states and districts went to Tripura and Bongaigaon, Assam, respectively.
Rupala in his speech said that the center is providing all the necessary support to achieve the goal of exporting one lakh crore from the fisheries sector by 2024-25. It is necessary to propose environmentally friendly fishing and take measures to sustain the sector while continuing consumption, he added.
He said the center has already extended Kisan Credit Card (KCC) support to fishermen and women. A massive campaign to create greater awareness about KCC will begin soon, he added.
The Minister of State for Fisheries, Livestock and Dairy, L Murugan, said the government is putting emphasis on the cultivation of algae. “We are also focusing on empowering fisherwomen and promoting entrepreneurship in the sector,” he added.
The ministers visited the exhibition booths set up by farmers and businessmen at the site. During the event, several posters, jingles about the fishing sector were also launched. The event was attended by senior officials from the state and the center.
Paradip is among the top five ports in India that are developing as major fishing ports. Odisha had received the best marine status last year. Even the Kalahandi district had received the award for the best inland district last year.
