Amidst COVID pandemic, the meeting of ‘Innovative Fish Farmers Association’, Punjab (IFFA) was organised by College of Fisheries, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU), Ludhiana, on a virtual platform to collect feedback on lockdown setback on fish farming. Strategic resilience action plan to mitigate the anticipated production losses during the current year was also discussed. Dr Prabjeet Singh and Dr Sachin O. Khairnar, Assistant Professors, coordinated the meeting and delivered expert lectures on “Judicious Use of Probiotics and Its Benefit in Aquaculture” and “Care of Fish during Monsoon”, respectively. Dr Amit Mandal, Assistant Professor, Department of Aquaculture apprised the farmers to re-cyclic farm waste into aquaculture through vermicomposting for added economic benefits. Queries of farmers were addressed through an interactive session between farmers and the faculty of the college.

Dr Meera D. Ansal, Head, Department of Aquaculture applauded the team for organising IFFA meeting successfully through electronic media, adhering to COVID social distancing guidelines. Assuring continued technical support to farmers via different electronic tools, she impressed that every sector has to change and adapt to post COVID social setup, so as to sustain production targets through novel scientific interventions. Further, she added that a patient positive attitude is also required to bounce back to normal in the future.
