The National Fisheries Development Board, in collaboration with the Department Of Fisheries, is organising a lavish fish festival titled Infish 2009, at People's Plaza, from the 11th July to the 13th July. The timings of the event are 9am to 9pm.

The festival is being inaugurated on the 11th July by the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Sharad Pawar. The aim of the festival is to enlighten the public, fishermen, farmers, students and others, on enhancing the production and consumption of fish, and to gain support in establishing fish processing and marketing infrastructure.

Infish, India’s biggest exposition of fisheries, will showcase technologies in fish production and processing. There will be interactions between suppliers and farmers. And getting your family along isn't unjustified - there are entertaining displays of domestic and exotic aquarium fish, and related gadgets as well. Plus, a fish recipe contest exclusively for the women, on the 12th.

The event has participation from institutions from all over the country including the Central Institute Of Fresh Water and the Central Institute Of Brackish Fish Water from Chennai, Orissa and West Bengal; the Marine Fisheries Research Institute from Kochi; and the Marine Products Export Development Agency and the Central Institute of Fishery Technology from Cochin.

Apart from delegates from the above institutions, and farmers, researchers from several states and union teritories in India including Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Uttaranchal, Maharashtra, Tamilnadu and many more, are participating in the 3-day event. An interactive seminar is being conducted on the 12th and the 13th of July, on fish culture, fish production & technology, and fish feed.

There are also many fish food stalls put up to promote fish eating, that contain several varieties of cooked fish. A live demonstration to educate aqua farmers is being held. 20 self-help groups of women, hailing from Arunachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Tamilnadu, West Bengal and Mumbai, will showcase their fish collections.
