The Department of Fisheries was created by the Govt. of Meghalaya with the sole intention of addressing all issues relating to Fishery matters in the state especially with regard to further enhance developmental activities with special emphasis to fish farming and fish production. Its main agenda to create and enhance the skill and knowledge of fish farming by giving financial assistance in kind or in cash, providing training and exposure visit workshop and orientation programmes on the latest technology adopted by progressive fish farmers/entrepreneurs etc. The department is also giving awareness and promoting for creation of fish sanctuaries to protect and conserve the indigenous and endemic fish species. In order to increase the fish production and to minimise the supply of fish seeds from outside the state, the department is also creating Eco-hatcheries/FRP hatcheries. The department is mainly focussing on constitution of individual fishery pond as well as community ponds to enhance the fish production as well as creating more water bodies thereby reducing the import of fishes from other states which will benefit the farmers to earn their income and improve their livelihood. In order to promote fish culture/aquaculture in the state the Govt.of Meghalaya launched "Meghalaya State Aquaculture Mission" with a powerful slogan "Dependence to Self Sufficiency" under which 6 Mini Misions are there and can be seen/downloaded from MSAM Website While implementing this ambitious programme of the Govt. the department is under tremendous pressure due to lack of manpower and with present law and order scenario specially in Garo Hills region.
