Mr. Nasar who hails from Pattambi and a resident of Kondoorkara adopts a unique method of fish farming compared to others by administering a fish feed that is totally chemical free. Nasar avoids chemically treated food. I do fish farming on a small scale in an organic way. I have poultry, cows, goats. I always administer organic feed to fishes & poultry. I prepare the feed in a certain way and carry out pisciculture, the major breeds being tilapia and nattar. Nasar mainly grows two breeds of fishes namely tilapia and nattar known for its delicious taste. Nasar claims that if we carry out fish farming with great care and attention, it will be very successful. If we create an artificial pond and pump in water, the pond I have here is spread over 5-6 cents & holds a water level which is a little more than one and a half metre. I put in one basket full of cow dung and a little calcium oxide, mix the solution and administer to the pond and leave it so for a week. This is to equip and culture the pond for fish farming so that the Ph level of the pond is balanced. The color of water turns green. Then I put in one-month-old, small fishes in the pond. I buy these fishes from outside and also the starter feed for the fishes for initial one month is brought from outside. It will cost around Rs 110- Rs 120 for one kilogram. We should administer only very less feed. I grow around 2000 fishes in this pond and 4-5 kilograms will suffice for a month. The water from this pond needs to be changed as it will get unsuitable after few months because of the fish waste & excreta. I then use this water for growing plants and vegetables. This is good manure for the plants. Thus I do a rotation here by pumping fresh water into the pond and reusing the water for growing plants and vegetables. When we put in more fishes, for the purpose of aeration, water is sprayed as fountain using HP motor. I have been growing poultry for three years now, that are rich in omega 3, which necessitate a special kind of feed. I prepare the feed based on the support that i received from CIFT- a central government institution at Ernakulam. I sell my poultry after processing at Ernakulam. The waste generated after processing – liver and other such parts are steamed first and then ground to paste. To this rice bran, corn and various other ingredients are added and fish feed is thus prepared. We get a pretty good harvest here. Fish farming has become the livelihood for Nasar, for which he has the support of his family members, friends and entire villagers. The fish caught from his pond gets sold off instantly which Nasar claims is the support & faith his fellow villagers have for him.
