Under the LEDP scheme 5 training camps for the 150 beneficiaries were done. We have conducted 3 exposure visits for the beneficiaries so that they get a real life experience regarding the aquaculture units. During these visits the beneficiaries gathered a lot of information regarding rearing of the fish, possible diseases infecting the fishes and its remedies, maintenance of the ponds etc. A total of 12 ponds has been set up so far of which 1 is ready for harvest. The first harvest was inaugurated by Mini G Kurup Panchayath Member of Agali Panchayath on 30/01/2023 at Boothivazhi, Agali.

After the training program, Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission will provide handhold support in inputs, operations, credit, marketing etc. for these farmers for a period of 1-year.The project was officially inaugurated in December 2022
