ELURU: Increased awarness among aqua culturists has helped them lap up the benefits of aqua culture, which is one of the fastest growing food production sectors in the world, principal of Madras Christian College Prof Alexendar Jesudasan has said.

Participating in national-level workshop on ‘Recent Trends in Aqua Culture for Sustainable Environment’ at the St Theressa Women’s College here Monday, he said that the benefits of aqua culture are on par with agriculture to the farmers and the oil extracted from the fish serves as medicine to fight many a disease.

Prof Alexendar also pointed out that aquaculture poses a low risk to the environment. In some cases, scientific culturing of fishes can benefit the environment by improving the water quality in ponds and lakes thereby reducing water pollution to a large extent.

Professor Matta Reddy of Adikavi Nannaya University spoke on the need to adopt latest techniques and methods in aqua culture for larger benefit to aqua growers.

College principal sister Aryula, vice-principal Souri, students  and others were present at the occasion.
