Biotech will contribute to food security: JNTUK V-C

KAKINADA: Marking its 13th anniversary, city-based Society for Promotion of Integrated Coastal Areas Management (SPICAM) conducted a national seminar on ‘Current trends in aquaculture development, its future, prospects of processing and marketing' at the seminar hall of JNTUK on Thursday.

Vice-Chancellor of JNTUK Allam Appa Rao, who was the chief guest, said that JNTUK was the first Indian University to launch M.Tech. in food technology. He felt that biotechnology could contribute to the future food security in developing countries such as India.

Stating that protection of intellectual property rights would encourage private sector investment in agro-biotechnology, he said that in developing countries the needs of smallholder farmers and environmental conservation were unlikely to attract private funds.

President of SPICAM T. Rajyalakshmi underscored the need for multidisciplinary approach to achieve development and called upon various departments pertaining to sea foods to work together to improve food security.

Demand for shrimp

President of All India Hatcheries' Association L. Satyanarayana faulted various government departments for not working with close coordination.

He felt that it was hampering the industrial development, particularly in the area of sea foods.

He, however, foresaw huge demand for shrimp in the international market in the next five years.
