Fish Farming at Arunachala

During this 2005-2006 season due to heavy rain and resultant high water levels, Fish Farming Permits were given to designated fishermen to populate water reservoirs and lakes at Arunachala. The primary fish used for this being a variety popular in Tamil Nadu known as Katalal Viralil. When fully grown these local fish weigh in at around 3-5 kgs.

This season was the first in five years that Fish Farming Licenses were issued. The Government joined with fishing folk in this venture as fifty per cent partners.

Beautiful picture. It is an interesting site, seems to capture a certain simplicity that governs your life and the life of the region. As much as that is a beautiful way to live I enjoy stress and complexity. Sounds strange? mick http://rockwatching.wordpress.com
