Within five years of its inception, India’s first fisheries polytechnic college at Bhavadevarapalli in Nagayalanka in Krishna District is inspiring other South Indian States to come up with similar institutes, to bridge the gap between availability of qualified technical workmen in aqua industry and producing the workforce.
Blessed with fascinating surroundings of the brackish water, river Krishna and Bay of Bengal, the students of Sri Mandali Venkata Krishna Rao Fisheries Polytechnic College are able to reach highest levels of excellence in their arena of training as they are attached to the aqua companies in the region.
“In Andhra Pradesh, there is a requirement of above 4,000 technical personal to run the flourishing aqua industry by the end of 2013-14 financial year, but hardly 30 students a year are passing out of the polytechnic and thus they are being lapped up by the recruiting agencies,” Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University’s M.V.K.R. Fisheries Polytechnic College Principal K.S. Krishna Prasad told The Hindu.
The students having a background of agriculture and allied sectors are being trained in key areas of aquaculture including hatcheries, feed plant management, processing plants during their two-year course. Ironically, girls from all parts of Andhra Pradesh are outnumbering the boys in the course as the aqua companies prefer them for their need in aqua labs and research.
“All kinds of aquaculture ponds are close to our college. We are even allowed to spend time there to observe its maintenance, feed, seed management and controlling water parameters during our holidays and training sessions,” said students. The group of 60 students in two different years of study are now filling up the three ponds with water on their college premises to raise the fish seed soon.
“Officials and teams from Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Karnataka have visited our institution and realised the immediate need to adopt our model. Two new colleges for fisheries polytechnic are coming up in Tamil Nadu from 2014-15 academic year, as they understand the job potential in the aqua industry” added Mr. Krishna Prasad.
