About Department

In the year 1947, Uttar Pradesh Fisheries Department was established under Animal Husbandry Department with a view to carry out fisheries development in a planned manner. In the year 1966, the fisheries department was separated from the animal husbandry department and started working independently. After the eradication of landlord in the first five-year plan period, some ponds were transferred to the fisheries department, in which development work was started. Fisheries development works gained special dynamism after the establishment of fisheries development agencies in the Sixth Five Year Plan. In order to meet the growing demand for fish seed in the state, 09 large size hatcheries were set up by Uttar Pradesh Fisheries Development Corporation. In the 7th Five Year Plan, fishery development agencies were established in all the districts of the state and through agencies, loans and government grants, short term training and assistance from banks for the improvement of ponds / construction of new ponds and first year production investments. The facility of free technical information was provided. The scheme operated in the financial year 2016-17 till the month of June 2016. In the year 2016-17, bringing all the above centrally sponsored / centrally funded schemes under one umbrella, the New Central Sector Scheme "Blue Revolution: Integrated Development and Management of Fisheries" was launched by the Government of India. Under this scheme various programs of fisheries development are being launched.
