The State Government has announced an allocation of Rs. 30 crore for setting up infrastructure for sale of fresh fish in all districts of the State, in the budget speech of 2014-15, recognising the success of the Matsyafed Fresh Fish Marts functioning in Ernakulam & Kottayam and the demand for similar fish marts from public of other areas & districts. It is proposed to set up 200 hi-tech fish marts in all districts of the State. Each district will also have a Base Station (warehouse) which will be responsible for fish procurement and distribution to the fish marts. This project has started revolutionizing the fresh fish retailing sector in the State and is creating a new horizon for the producer organization like Matsyafed in fisheries sector. This will also create additional employment opportunities to about 1000 women and empower them to manage their homes and finances better.
Now we have 27 Nos. of such outlets in Kozhikode, Ernakulam, Kottayam, Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram.
