 Beta,
 
   Thats  a  great  news.  Theres  been  a  small  thought  in  my  mind  to  have  a  small  discus  hatchery,  provided  ofcourse  the  Government    provides  help  in  setting  up  the  infrastructure  like  in  Singapore  &  Malaysia.
 
   Its  only  a  thought  now,  but  will  most  likely  bear  result  in  the  future.

 "Rearing  ornamental  fish  is  now  the  second  most  popular  hobby  worldwide,  coming  after  photography  -  according  to  a  United  Nations  report.  "
 
 It  is  interesting  to  note  the  above  info.  Good  we're  part  of  a  very  large  enthusiasts.

 Its  time  that  we  should  think  of  publishing  information  about  our  native  species  and  their  compatability  with  other  inmates  and  species  suitable  for  planted  aquaria...Say  what?

 Nice  to  hear  that  Very Happy  We  have  lots  of  potential  to  become  a  major  player  but  unless  the  government  takes  some  steps  nurture  it  we  are  not  going  to  go  anywhere.

 Channel  NewsAsia's  India  Correspondent  Vaibhav  Varma  may  be  partly  right  about  North  east  and  Kerala.  
 
 But  most  of  it  is  daydreams.  
 
 Karnataka  with  its  vast  inland  and  coastal  fisheries  still  has  not  appointed  a  Minister  for  fisheries.  
 The  post  is  still  vacant.
   Ornamental  fishes  is  a  non-  starter  and  Aquariums  are  something  kept  by  a  few  rich  city  kids  according  to  most  officials  in  the  Department  of  fisheries.
 The  good  news.
 The  Govt.  of  Karnataka  selects  between  12  to  15  hobbyists(ladies  only)  every  year  and  gives  them  training  in  ornamental  fish  farming.  
 Rs.  80,000/-  is  given  as  loan  on  low  interest.
   The  best  part  is  that  of  this  Rs.  40,000/-  is  subsidy.  
 The  bad  part  is  that  I  personally  feel  that  this  amount  ends  up  for  the  purchase  of  items  for  what  it  was  not  intended.
 
 God  knows  what  happens  in  the  other  states???  :lol:

 It  would  be  of  interest  to  mention  here,  especially  on  the  comment  that  it  is  "something  kept  by  a  few  rich  city  kids  according  to  most  officials  in  the  Department  of  fisheries",  posted  by  redevil,  that,  in  Kolkata,  almost  every  bengali  household  has  kept  or  keeps  aquariums  and  ornamental  fish.  Calcutta  and  it  suburbs  are  famous  for  breeding  and  large  scale  trade  on  many  varieties  of  gold  fish  and  other  ornamental  fish.  There  is  a  weekly  market  of  ornamental  fish  in  Kolkata,  every  sunday  and  one  must  actually  see  that  market  to  get  the  true  picture  of  the  proportions  to  which  this  hobby  is  imbibed  into  the  various  social  and  economical  strata  here.  Eeveryone  keeps  fish  in  calcutta:-D

 I  would  like  to  hear  about  the  efforts  of  aquarium  societies  in  India  towards  coaxing  the  goverment  towards  opening  up  and  allowing  the  import  of  live  ornamental  fishes  into  India.  I  presume  it  is  now  illegal  to  do  so.  Correct  me  if  I  am  wrong.  We  are  ending  up  paying  more  for  the  fish  than  an  average  American  would  pay  for  the  same  fish  in  his  country,  cause  we  are  buying  smuggled  goods.
 
 Simba!

 Only  the  first  few  breeding  pairs  have  to  be  smuggled.
   Then  you    Calcutta  guys  can  get  into  production.  
 Its  a  tropical  country.  Cheers.  And  when  are  you  guys  going  to  send  and  sell  the  fish  to  the  the  other  parts  of  the  country.  
 There  is  a  lot  of  demand.  Anyhow,  what  fish  do  you  guys  breed  now???  :wink:

 In  Rupee  terms,  fish  in  India  cost  the  same  or  less...although  I  can  get  fish  of  better  quality  here.
