Though mechanization and automation for many of fish farming activities are already in place in other countries, many of such systems may not be cost effective to be used in the low valued carp culture. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop indigenous farm mechanization and automation technology and implements so as to reduce the operational cost and drudgery. Hi-tech aquaculture with use of automatic pond environmental monitoring, oxygenation, monitoring of feeding, water exchange and efficient health management aimed at high fish production is almost non-existent in the country. Effort is needed in this regard to develop state of the art technology for high scale fish production in controlled environment.
