The project that would reportedly be developed on 300 acres, with 150 acres of water spread area already allocated from the 1500 acres of the total water spread area of the reservoir, would produce about 1.2 lakh metric tons of fish every year.

Fishin India Private Limited, Rajanna Aqua (Nanda group) and Mulpuri Aqua have come forward to set up their processing facilities in the hub by spending Rs 1,300 crore.

5,750 lakh metric tons of seedlings would reportedly be generated per annum in the hatchery while two lakh metric tons of fish feed would be produced by utilizing rice, maize, groundnut, soybean and poultry waste by supporting local farmers.
