Fish Farmer - - News -

AF­TER the launch of its first ded­i­cated fish feed plant in Andhra Pradesh in Jan­uary, Cargill opened its tech­nol­ogy ap­pli­ca­tion cen­tre at Kaikaluru in the state last month.

The cen­tre is de­signed to help aqua­cul­ture farm­ers ac­cess new in­no­va­tions.

It cov­ers 3.6 hectares of land that hosts 20 fish and shrimp ponds and fea­tures a train­ing fa­cil­ity and re­search sta­tion.

By mid-2018, the com­pany will open new tech­nol­ogy ap­pli­ca­tion cen­tres for aqua­cul­ture in four coun­tries, in­clud­ing Viet­nam, Thai­land, In­done­sia and In­dia.

‘In­dia is an im­por­tant and fast grow­ing aqua­cul­ture mar­ket,’ said Chad Gauger, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Cargill’s aqua­cul­ture nutri­tion busi­ness in South Asia.
