debasis 
Debasis De. Dr
Designation : Principal Scientist
Discipline : Animal/Fish Nutrition
Division : Nutrition, Genetics and Biotechnology Division
Specialization : Animal Nutrition
Research areas:
  • Nutrient enrichment of feed ingredient through SSF
  • Nutrient requirement and feed development of different finfish and shellfishes
  • Use of unconventional feed ingredients for cost effective feed development
  • Functional feed for larvae and broodstock
Brief profile:

After taking masters in Animal Nutrition in 1995 and PhD in Animal Nutrition in 1998 I entered in to ARS stream and since 2003 I am working in CIBA on Aqua nutrition. I currently work in the division of Nutrition, Genetics and Biotechnology in CIBA. I have worked on nutrient requirement and feed development of Hilsa, grey mullet, Asian seabass and for multispecies culture. I contributed to the development of low cost polyculture feed, branded as PolyPlus, which has been commercialized. As team leader I contributed on successful rearing of hilsa in brackishwater pond using formulated feed. I have also worked on nutrient enrichment of feed ingredients through solid state fermentation.

Current Research Projects (3 important ones):

NoTitle Funded By
1 Stock characterization, captive breeding, seed production and culture of hilsa (Tenualosa ilisha)NASF, ICAR
2Newer Feed resources and feed additives for development and improvement of shrimp and fish feedsInstitute
3 Development of economically viable and sustainable brackishwater aquaculture practices with special reference to Sundarban Mangrove biosphereInstitute

Recognitions (National & international level) :
  • Endeavour Research Fellowship-2015 of Govt. of Australia for Post-Doctoral Research in South Australian Research and Development Institute Aquatic Sciences Centre, West Beach, South Australia
  • Gold medal in M.Sc (Animal Nutrition) from National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal, Haryana, India
  • Best paper award in the National seminar in Hindi on “Traditional Aqua farming system: prospects and challenges” at KRC of CIBA, Kakdwip on 11-12 December, 2012.

Director's Message...
Present day Indian shrimp farming almost entirely depends on aquaculture of exotic white shrimp, Penaeus vannamei .
Sole dependence on a single species cast doubt about the sustainability of Indian shrimp farming.
