Topic: Blue Revolution

Topic Description:

Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu on Friday inaugurated the fifth edition of the Aqua Aquaria India in Hyderabad.

It's an event that's held every year. This time, the theme was ‘Taking Blue Revolution to India’s Hinterland’.

The Blue Revolution is part of the Government's efforts to promote fishing as an allied activity for farmers in order to double their incomes.

The Blue Revolution in fact refers to an explosive growth in the aquaculture industry. And much like the Green Revolution. it is a huge focus area for the NDA government.

As part of its efforts to raise seafood output and exports and promote sustainable aquaculture, the Government has even constituted an independent Ministry for Fisheries.

The Union Budget presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman this year also mentions the Blue Revolution.
