Mahabahu Fisheries Pvt Ltd., an AAGL enterprise, is an integrated aquaculture production unit with fish farms and seed bank, along with a mid-sized feed mill. Anup Sarmah, a hardcore entrepreneur from Gohpur in Sonitpur district of Assam, initiated Mahabahu Fisheries Pvt Ltd. on the 24th Oct, 2016. The enterprise started its “Pisces Project” in just 30 bighas of water bed in 2016 in the flood prone Jakapara village of Gohpur, which has now gone on to become one of the largest fish industries in Central Assam with 210 bighas of pond. Despite being a first-generation entrepreneur, Anup Sarmah has been able to provide livelihood opportunities to 20 persons from his native village. Every single day he is striving to impact native lives, so that his community becomes economically self-sufficient.
In recognition of this emerging enterprise in the domain of fisheries, The National Fisheries Board, Government of India has awarded Mr. Anup Sarmah with a rare honour of “The Best Pisces Palak” in the Northeast and other Hill states at a national level.
