Catch & Carry is the brainchild of Zaheer Karmali and Priya Prabhu. It is a project of Zash Farms.
Here, buyers can choose live chonak from the tanks, have it filleted to their needs and take it home in airtight hygienic packaging.
One can choose a baby or an adult chonak, depending on one's need and taste.
Zash Farms, which is based in Keri, breeds chonak' (also known as sea bass) with the help of recirculatory aquaculture systems (RAS).
The staff at Catch & Carry will cut the fish as per the customers' needs without asking any questions.
The entire place follows hygienic practices and methods for cleaning the fish.
The feed used for the fish is nutritious and as per international standard.
The tanks at the farm are big enough to allow fish to move freely and grow healthy.
The bio-filtration works round the clock so that the water in the tanks is well oxygenated and cleaned of solid waste.
The zero waste emissions and sustainable model followed at Zash Farms allow the reuse of the natural rich water for agricultural activities.
This innovation is helping Goans to enjoy fresh chonak even during the off season.
