Apart from technical training, financial assistance is also being provided by the Government of Chhattisgarh to fishermen farmers. By adopting new technology, fish farmers are able to make it a profitable business. Shri Ajit Ekka, a resident of Kanamora village of Jashpur development block, is making profit by farming fish today.
