Karnataka’s Yadgir stands top in inland fish production

 

Yadgir, otherwise a backward district, has emerged top in the state in inland fish production. It is followed by Vijayapura and Dakshina Kannada.

Inland fishing is nothing but fishing in ponds, lakes, and streams. The district has surpassed the related target set by the state government. Yadgir has produced 7,416 tonnes of fish — as against the targeted 6,904 tonne — three months prior to March, when the period set for the target ends.

The district has 250 lakes, of which 175 are spread within 100 acres, while 75 are spread over 100 acres. Apart from lakes, Yadgir also boasts of two major rivers — Bheema and Krishna — which have helped the district achieve the target.

Around 500 farmers in the district are involved in fish production. While many of them have their own ponds, some make use of lakes and rivers.
