Fishery Scenario

Fish farming in Mokokchung district is still in its growing stage. The total fish production from all sources in Nagaland in 2007-08 is 5975 MT, of which Mokokchung district contributed 398 MT from pond culture. As per 2001 census the per capita availability of fish in the district is 3.20 Kg which is very close to the state average of 3.33 Kg/person/year. According to WHO per capita consumption of fish is recommended at 11 kg which indicated that the deficiency stands at 7.8 Kg. The present fish production in the district is not even sufficient to meet the needs of the rural areas (where fish ponds are concentrated) because of which the urban dwellers have to depend almost entirely on imports for their fish requirements. Intensive fish culture production practices are confined mainly to the low lying areas and pockets of valleys spread all over the district. Because of the hilly terrain the average pond size is also small. Intensive fish farming is relatively a new activity, about 3-4 decades back the main sources of fish were from the few rivers and streams. Major rivers in the district are:

1. Tsurang        2. Milak          3. Dikhu         4. Tsumok      5. Menung.  

 Besides, riverlets like Ailang, Alachila, Alushi, Tsurong, Tsuong, Tsupen, Tsutsung, etc drains the district. These rivers and riverlets are the major sources for providing catch fish, which of late is being over exploited due to rampant and indiscriminate fishing especially poisoning and blasting with dynamite.

Natural lakes of this region are Omoklushi, situated on the out skirt of Chuchuyimpang village and Sungkotenem Awatsung of Mopungchuket village. These lakes are under the management of the village community and apart from providing a source for fish culture, these lakes also provides a platform for recreation (angling) and are also a tourist attraction. 

Fish farming in the district at present is a tertiary or at the most a secondary activity under the existing farming system. The different systems of fish farming in the district are Intensive fish culture in ponds (grow out composite culture) and integrated farming (paddy cum fish and pig cum fish). The species reared are Catla, Rohu and Mrigal (Indian Major Carp) and Silver carp, Grass carp and Common carp (Exotic Carp), of these the exotic carp is more popular among
