The KMN has identified the importance of improving the hatchery sector in view of developing whole shrimp aquaculture industry.
The existing small scale hatcheries has driven the industry up to present status.
KMN always honor to hatchery sector for their endeavor. With the view of seeing the industry developments through existing hatchery sector, the KMN established first ever shrimp Nauplii Center in Sri Lanka.
Our intention of this KMN Nauplii Center is to generate pathogen free nauplii and distributed among small and medium scale hatcheries in the country with the view of minimizing diseases and increase national shrimp production.
With functioning of Nauplii center, Authorities can convert all the hatcheries to SPF Hatcheries. The Centralized Nauplii center gives opportunity for maintain biosecurity and avoid possible inbreeding.
