Brief profile:

After taking masters in Aquaculture in 2011 and entered into the ARS stream 2016. I am working in CIBA since 2017 on Brackishwater Aquaculture different livelihood models for coastal fisher folk communities. I currently work at Navsari Gujarat Research Centre (NGRC) Navsari, under the Finfish Culture Division of CIBA. Presently I am working on nursery culture, cage culture, Integrated Multitrophic Cage culture, Brackishwater Integrated Fish Farming system in pond of Brackishwater different Candidate species (Seabass, Pearl spot, Tiger Shrimp, Red Snapper, Scat, Mullet) in ponds and creeks as an alternative income generation for coastal communities of Maharashtra and Gujarat. I have contributed to the revenue generation and employment to more than 300 coastal farmers of Maharashtra.  I have interests in breeding and larval rearing of grey mullet and development bracksihwater aquaculture livelihood models for coastal fisher folks.

Research areas:

  • Development of different brackishwater aquaculture  candidate species livelihood models
  • Cage Culture of different brackishwater aquaculture  candidate species as an alternate livelihood option for coastal fisher folks
  • Finfish Breeding, Nursery Rearing,
  • Development & Participation of Self Help Group in Brackishwater Aquaculture, etc

Current Research Projects:
