Mangaluru, 09 Jan: An Indo-Norway project on vaccine development for aquaculture funded by the department of science and technology, government of India and Norwegian Research Council is currently in operation at Nitte (Deemed to be University).


Under the auspices of this project, Nitte (Deemed to be University) organized an Indo-Norway Workshop on Biotechnological tools in aquatic animal health management on January 8.


Inaugurating the workshop, Dr Satheesh Kumar Bhandary, vice chancellor, Nitte University highlighted the interlinkages between animal health, plant health and environment in ‘one health concept.’ One of the issues in production of food animals is the indiscriminate use of antibiotics and consequent selection and spread of antibiotic resistance.



Dr Bhandary, as a clinician himself, highlighted the problem faced by doctors in treating infections caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria. In order to minimize use of antibiotics in livestock and aquaculture sectors, alternate technologies to manage health are required and Dr Bhandary said that the workshop is very timely as India is emerging as the second largest aquaculture producing country in the world.


The Norwegian delegation included Prof Oystein Evensen, Dr Stephen Mutoloki, Dr Hetron Munangandu and Saurabh Dubey.


About 50 participants from different institutions including Mangalore University, department of fisheries, government of Karnataka, College of Fisheries, Mangaluru attended the workshop.


Dr Indrani Karunasagar, director (R&D) Nitte University welcomed the participants. The speakers in the workshop included members of the Norwegian delegation as well as Dr Iddya Karunasagar, senior director (International Relations), Nitte University, Dr Anirban Chakrabarty, deputy director and Dr Biswajit Maiti, Associate Professor from Nitte University Center for Science Education and Research.
