With the technical, financial and moral support of Department of Fisheries (DOF), there are eight households (and 21 units of raceways) who are doing trout farming in a promising way in West Sikkim district. Out of which there are more than ten progressive Trout farmers in Sribadam. DOF has also helped them in forming trout farmers’ cooperative society, they even have sanctioned community trout hatchery.

Their market includes Sribadam, Soreng, Gyalshing, Jorethang, Namchi and Gangtok. They generally go for harvesting and selling their production based on demand; therefore, there is no chances of loss through spoilage.

Shri Samdup Bhutia resident of Upper Sreebadam, West Sikkim, is one of the farmers who availed all the benefit under trout schemes implemented in the State. He started Trout Farming in the year 2012 and was given financial assistance for construction of one raceway along with the first year inputs (seed and feed). He feels encouraged with the outcome and is planning to culture trout at larger scale in the future. From the year 2015-16 he has also started operating a small hatchery for production of trout seed.

There are vast cold water resources in the state which are virgin and still unutilized. Directorate in future is planning to take up these areas for promoting trout farming in private sector with the view to further increase trout production in the state.

Farmers in this village are very cheerful in taking the trout farming to the next level, and they even are planning to sell their farm output to mainland of Indian and abroad as well. Each one has 3 to 10 tanks and home stays attached to the farms. One can stay and learn about the fish farming catch the fish and have it cooked for a meal. Visiting Sribadam Trout Farms is a lifetime experience.
