This week VOA Urdu published a 3 minute vlog on its YouTube channel highlighting locals in Sindh’s Tharparkar district successfully harvesting organic fish in a saline water lake.
The production of high-value marine fish and shrimp in inland saline well water is a growing industry in several countries. Organic industry is projected to grow to an estimated $263 billion by the year 2022, says a report.
With successful fish farming and aquaculture projects underway at the reservoir, Gorano has become a prized eco-tourism site.
Pakistan is utilizing a portion of the 1500 acre lake near Thar coal mine for organic (chemical free) fish farming, “a first in the region”, say some experts.
