Union Minister Kiren Rijiju on Monday shared a video and photo of Matsya Matsya (meaning fish in Hindi) 6000. Matsya 6000 is a manned submersible that will explore the ocean depths as part of the Samudrayaan mission. The ship is being built by the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) in Chennai. Once launched, it will be India’s first manned ocean exploration mission. The round vessel will be designed to take the vessel to a depth of 6,000 meters in the ocean. But the inaugural underwater journey will be 500 meters. Rijizu said the mission would not disturb the marine ecosystem.

Next is ‘Samudrayan’. This is the ‘Matsya 6000’ submersible under construction at the National Institute of Ocean Technology, Chennai. India’s first manned deep ocean mission ‘Samudrayan’ plans to send 3 people in a submersible to a depth of 6 km to study deep-sea resources and biodiversity assessment. The project will not disturb the marine ecosystem,” said Minister Kiran Rijiju, posting on the X (formerly Twitter) handle.

“Deep Ocean Mission supports Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Blue Economy’ vision and plans for sustainable use of marine resources for economic growth of the country, improvement of livelihoods and jobs and preservation of health of marine ecosystems,” Rijiju added.

A video accompanying the post shows the minister sitting inside the ship, which is still under construction. An expert Minister Rijizu is seen explaining the Fish 6000 and how it works. The ship will search the depths of the ocean for mineral resources. In a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha earlier this year, Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences, Dr Jitendra Singh said the mission is expected to be implemented by 2026.
