SISTA360, a digital platform for sustainable aquaculture, is set to launch in New Delhi on September 25, aiming to revolutionize the aquaculture sector in India. The platform, a subsidiary of Kings Infra, offers a one-stop solution to aqua farmers, providing them with affordable inputs, sustainable production methods, and profitable marketing strategies. In line with global efforts to develop a traceable supply chain, SISTA360 emphasizes transparency and ensures the use of safe and chemical-free practices.
The launch event will also feature a global seminar that aims to highlight India’s immense potential in sustainable aquaculture. The seminar will bring together policymakers, industry representatives, farmers, officials, and other stakeholders to develop a think-tank for a sustainable and vibrant aquaculture sector in India. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi recognizing the importance of the fisheries and aquaculture sector for India’s growth strategy, the time is ripe for all stakeholders to collaborate and position India as the global hub of aquaculture by 2030.
According to Shaji Baby John, Chairman and Managing Director of Kings Infra, the aquaculture sector in India has the potential for a 10X growth sustainably. Currently, only 5-10% of the country’s aquaculture resources have been utilized. With SISTA360’s innovative approach and the support of the government, the sector can achieve significant growth in the coming years.
SISTA360, a Bangalore-based start-up incubated by Kings Infra, combines science, technology, and advanced aquaculture techniques to make the industry more sustainable, transparent, traceable, and profitable for all stakeholders. By integrating artificial intelligence, big data, and R&D, the platform enables farmers, buyers, exporters, and consumers to make informed decisions and contribute to a healthier and more profitable aquaculture sector.
The launch of SISTA360 and the global seminar in New Delhi signify a turning point for the aquaculture sector in India. With sustainable practices, transparency, and efficient supply chain management, the sector has the potential to become a key contributor to India’s economic growth while providing safe and nutritious seafood to the global market. As the industry progresses, it is crucial for all stakeholders to work together to maximize the sector’s potential and ensure a sustainable future for aquaculture in India.
