A team of researchers from IIT Kharagpur have developed a fish fodder which can improve the size of the fish and also enhance the taste. Now, people who love to eat fish can experience something new by using the product.
The development of the product was carried out at a lab in IIT Kharagpur’s Science and Technology Entrepreneurs’ Park. The lab is operated by Zelence, a start-up incubated in the premier institute.
The lab has named the product as Mr. Fish. The natural ingredients which were used to develop the product were produced inside the lab itself. The ingredients included cultivated probiotics, special enzymes, and bioactive molecules
According to Jayanta Bhattacharya, IIT Kharagpur, the natural ingredients in the fodder enhances the size, nutrition quality and taste of the fish.
Mr. Fish is being tested in West Bengal and has delivered successful results. Currently, there are no such products in the market which can enhance the fish quality while maintaining its taste; most of them deal with diseases control but don’t deal with fish.
The researchers were working on the new product for almost two years and the product has been under field testing for over one year.
Zelence is looking for investors and partners from India as well as outside the country. The company will look to increase its products portfolio under the aquaculture segment.
The new product may hit the market soon as it gained some attention from the farmers of Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal and also Bangladesh.
