The extremely severe cyclone, “Umphan” caused havoc in the lives of Sundarban inhabitants on 20th May 2020. It has badly affected all types of fish culture systems in Sundaban delta of West Bengal. During the post-cyclone and COVID-19 lockdown period, farmers are unable to get inputs essential for fish farming. Therefore, their farming operations are hampered. KRC of ICAR-CIBA has taken initiative to distribute fish feed (Poly Plus) to the needy fish farmers of Sundarban. Feed was distributed to 20 marginal farmers of Dakshin Chandanpiri, Namkhana block of South 24 Parganas district in the presence of officials of the Vivekananda Farmers Club, Namkhana on 25th June 2020. The beneficiary farmers expressed their happiness and appreciation for this timely help by CIBA during this inadvertent situation.
