New Delhi: When Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb claimed that Ducks recycle water, and their swimming increases Oxygen levels in water bodies, he drew criticism from various quarters. But Biplab has the last laugh. He stands vindicated with Rameshwar Das, Secretary, Fisheries department, Tripura government, supporting his claim with facts and scientific explanation.
Talking to media, Das said that ducks definitely increase oxygen levels in the water bodies by swimming in them. This results in benefiting fish. He said that the surface of the water is stirred when Ducks Swim on them, resulting in increase of oxygen level. Das also explained how the water is recycled when ducks swim (see the video).Rameshwar Das
Earlier, addressing an inaugural event of a traditional boat race at Rudrasagar, an artificial lake around water palace Neermahal, the chief minister told the audience that he planned to distribute 50,000 ducklings to fishermen who lived near the lake. The chief minister said that white ducklings would also be distributed to villagers across Tripura, especially at tourist destinations near waterbodies, to enhance natural beauty and boost the rural economy. Then, Deb explained why it was beneficial to have ducks.
“When ducks swim in water, oxygen level automatically increases in the waterbody. It (oxygen) gets recycled. Fish in the water will get more oxygen. They also benefit from the bird droppings. Thus, pisciculture will benefit and fishes will grow faster, that too in a completely organic way,” Deb said.
