Andhra Pradesh: Bhimavaram to host AQUAEX India-2022 from November 4 to 6

The R.K. Convention Center in Bhimavaram will host the fisheries and aquaculture exposition AQUAEX INDIA-2022 from November 4 to 6.

The programme will be put on by the Aqua Farming Technologies and Solutions (AFTS) in association with the Society for Indian Fisheries and Aquaculture (SIFA), the Government of Andhra Pradesh, the National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB), Hyderabad, the Department of Fisheries (DOF), New Delhi, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi, and USSEC, India. All the stakeholders in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors will benefit from the three-day event’s value-added proposal.

A logo and poster for the AQUAEX INDIA-2022 were unveiled on Wednesday by Seediri Appalaraju, the minister of fisheries, dairy development, and animal husbandry.

The Minister spoke at the event and referred to aquaculture as a growth driver. 30% of the nation’s total marine exports and 70% of exports of cultivated shrimp come from Andhra Pradesh. The government is subsidising power to small and marginal aquaculture farmers to highlight the potential and assist them. According to him, the aquaculture sector is being taxed $1.50 per unit of power.

“The government is taking many steps to give a boost to fisheries. Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy will lay the foundation stone for the Fisheries University in West Godavari district on October 28,” he said.

The event, according to Aquaex India CEO Venu Dantuluri, aims to establish a global platform by delivering the most recent innovations, services, tools, and machines to markets throughout the world.

“The previous AQUAEX India events acted as a disruptive force when it came to unveiling international trade opportunities and set high standards for knowledge transfer,” said Samir Patra, Director of AQUAEX India.
