Department Organizations Animal Husbandry and Fisheries

The Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Department plays a major role in providing veterinary health care and improving the genetic production potentialities of livestock and poultry reared in the State. It also aims to develop the fisheries sector within the State. Livestock sector is emerging as one of the potential and income-generating source to the rural community and providing full time employment in rural as well as semi-urban areas. Livestock wealth is the backbone of the rural economy. Agriculture farming taken up in smaller land holdings is becoming unproductive in recent years, due to lack of assured market/ fluctuation of prices for produce and other adverse seasonal conditions. Thus, the farmers are shifting from agriculture to Livestock farming. Availability of technology and inputs are also contributing to the shift.
