Presently, under developed and developing countries are suffering from a great issue of food security resulting in the problem of malnutrition. Aquaculture and fisheries play a significant role in meeting the problem of food security by producing nutritious and delicious animal protein employing the precious water resources on earth. Aquaculture and fisheries have been experiencing a boom since the min-1980s and therefore it is one of the emerging framings during last few decades in our country. Though it has huge opportunity in rural sector of our country for producing and meeting the demand of animal protein, we are not exploring this resource properly. Besides, aqua and fish farming is able to uplift the socio-economic status of the rural peoples by generating the employment as well as direct cash along with animal protein. In order to improve the socio-economic status of the rural peoples, the following strategies should follow:
- Bring awareness among the rural people regarding the benefit of fish culture in rural water body
- Awareness on scientific technical knowhow of fish farming
- Consider the unused water resources (canal, derelict water body and ponds) for fish culture for extra income
- Follow the integrated fish farming to enhance the fish yield
