The training modules covered on-field exposure visits, field demonstrations and in-house class interactions with the scientists of ICAR-CIFRI. The interactive sessions involved the present aspects of inland open water fisheries and problems faced by the local fishers.

The knowledge gap in regard to delineation of inland water bodies through GIS platform, limno-chemistry of sediment & water, ecology & fisheries of rivers & estuarine ecosystem, enhancement of fisheries in reservoirs and wetlands.
