Fish are a good source of protein, and some varieties of edible fish are specially preferred. One such fish happens to be the Kashmiri rainbow trout. And it costs Rs 2000 per kg. Yet, it is quite popular even in Hyderabad, and now a resourceful entrepreneur is rearing these fish at his plant in Kandakur, Rangareddy district.


The fish is naturally found in the lakes and streams of Kashmir in abundance. However, one can angle for it after paying a fee of Rs 1000 per day, and one cannot catch more than six fish per day. However, soon, one need not get fish from Kashmir or from abroad. It will be available right here.


Aditya Rithvik Narra has succeeded in mimicking the conditions conducive for rainbow trout fish to grow in Telangana. Soon, he will have a yield of one tonne of rainbow trout a day. The oily fish belongs to the salmon family and is much sought after by food lovers and the health-conscious.


The first harvest will be in November at Smart Green Aquaculture. The lifecycle of rainbow trout from egg stage to being about 1.5 kg is roughly one year, and Rithivik and his team have already been into it for six months. The plant will be receiving an investment of Rs 25 crore in phases.


A 100 gm of trout will give 141 calories, 20 gm of protein, and six grams of fat. It is a good source of sodium, potassium, vitamin C, D, B6, calcium, cobalamin, and magnesium. The fish will be sold in domestic markets and will also be exported.


Rithvik spent over six years researching the subject and came up with the right process and equipment to grow the rainbow trout. He uses recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) where the temperature is between 5 and 15 degrees centigrade at all times.


As of now, Smart Green Aquaculture is importing rainbow trout eggs from the US. Some of the hatched fingerlings are sold to farmers, and the rest are used by the company for eggs. The company also offers turnkey solutions, including consulting, design, supply of eggs, feed, and others. Currently, they have 50 employees on rolls.
