Release of live fish and sensitization.
1. Release of Live fish.
3000 live Golden Mahseer fingerlings and other natives fishes will be released into Mau river which is 2.8 kilometres away from the centre to replenish the wild stock.
Students from a few invited schools will be given a guided tour of the central campus. They will be escorted to a conservation centre that houses hundreds of aquariums which has fishes such as the endangered Golden mahseer, Chocolate mahseer, and other native fishes. Students will be sensitized to the importance of fish in human life and meeting the country’s food security and nutritional status. They will be also sensitized to the negative impacts of introducing exotic species, especially invasive and voracious ones.
