VISION 2020 OF NIFPHATT

FOR POST HARVEST FISHERY TECHNOLOGY UPGRADATION AND TRAINING


Though fisheries are a state subject, being National Institute we envision it from a national fisheries perspective. By the year 2020 NIFPHATT envisages the best post harvest fish utilization and consumption with the least post harvest losses and delivery of the best quality  fish and fish products in the all the states of India through the proactive participation and partnership of NIFPHATT withall state fisheries departments of the country.  We do not envisage creation of state level branches of NIFPHATT. But we do propose to identify existing state and central level fisheries institutions in each state for the requisite  capacity building, project formulation and fund sourcing to enable the achievement of above objectives.

With this perspective the redefined goals proposed for the beginning next millennium is given below:

1.Development of novel value added unconventional products from marine and inland fish varieties 

2.State level and national level campaigns-"Fish is the healthiest food"

3.Spreading the message-"Fish as a remedy for the protein deficient population"

4.Crying necessity for increased fish production &  consumption

5.Interaction with Government and non government sectors

6.Partnership building 

7.Appropriate intervention in the fisheries education system of the country

8.Act as a common facility centre for exporters

8.Act as a rural appropriate technology design and dissemination centre

8.  Tools to be adopted to achieve the above goals
