We welcome collaborations with any of these organisations or individual farmers.

Our Impact

We have worked for the betterment of farmed fishes (and farmed shrimp occasionally) since 2021. In this period, we have potentially improved the lives of 12,50,000 fishes and 14,00,000 shrimp

The impact evaluation criteria (hover over the photos on the right) are being improved continuously to enable better estimations as learn about the Indian aquaculture paradigm.
