BHAVNAGAR: Those looking forward to having marine life in their aquariums need not go anywhere in search of seawater. Scientists at Central Salt and Marine Chemicals Research Institute (CSMCRI), Bhavnagar, have developed a special marine salt to address their needs.
It is a solid form of artificial seawater which can be used for sustaining life in a marine aquarium. Director, CSMCRI, P K Ghosh said, “The objective was to meet the greater need of scientific community at large where seawater is not available for research.”
“We have sent the marine salt for experiments to various institutions as well as people who keep marine aquariums in their houses. We have received a very good response from them. Sea life survives with the help of this salt in a natural manner. The salt is basically a ‘solid form of the sea’. When dissolved, it turns fresh water to seawater. Since seawater contains many salts and micro-nutrients, getting the right salt at an affordable price is of critical importance. This salt would be cheaper and available at around Rs 15 per kg,” Ghosh said……

AHMEDABAD: After a successful maiden project in Amreli, a patented salt-making process that has more than tripled the income of agariyas (traditional salt workers) there is likely to be extended to salt works in the Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) near Patan this year.
Developed by scientists from the Bhavnagar-based Central Salt and Marine Chemical Research Institute (CSMCRI), a Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) laboratory, the process not only improves salt quality but makes use of by-products that were earlier simply thrown away…..
