The Central Institute of Fisheries Technology (ICAR-CIFT) will offer a series of online international training sessions for a selected number of overseas government officials engaged in the agricultural sector from AARDO member nations in Africa and Asia. 

The training program, which includes subjects based on harvest and post-harvest fisheries, as well as value chain management in fisheries, is conducted in collaboration with the African-Asian Rural Development Organization (AARDO), located in New Delhi. 

From August 31 to September 9, 107 participants from 21 Asian and African nations, including one from the United States, will participate in the first in their training series, a ten-day training program on fishing technology and fish processing. 

CIFT, the only ICAR facility designated to undertake research on both harvest and post-harvest fisheries, used to hold monthly training sessions for international participants at its Kochi site. Because of the travel limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, it has now moved training to an online format. 

In the past week, CIFT has developed a technology to convert fish waste into aqua feed.  

The technology developed by ICAR-CIFT will aid in the conversion of fish waste into aqua feeds, and it was created with the dual goal of meeting the high requirement for fish feed in the aquaculture sector while also eliminating unsanitary fish waste management practices.  

Fish waste is a great source of protein that is typically regarded as a nuisance by both public & municipal organisations. It has the potential to replace fish meal as a feed, significantly lowering aquaculture production costs. With the increase in cultured fish production in the country, there is a large demand for low-cost protein components for aqua feed. 

CIFT has developed a simple technique for converting wet market trash straight into high-protein, low-mineral aqua and poultry feed.
