Gul Kripalani, seafood tycoon, and vice-president of the Seafood Exporters Association of India has just been installed as president of the Rotary Club of Mumbai. The Seafood Exporters Association of India represents nearly all seafood processors and exporters from India and works cohesively with all concerned within and outside the industry for the development and promotion of the seafood industry. Headquartered in Cochin, SEAI has eight regional offices across India.

30-plus years in the Indian seafood industry, Kripalani is engaged in exporting fishery products, farm-raised shrimp and frozen meat to Europe, US, Middle East and Far East in his capacity as chairman and managing director of the Pijikay Group Of Companies. In his leisure time, he is involved in social service.Starting as the Chief Executive, Export Division of Precision Gears Pvt. Ltd, Kripalani launched his own business in 1971. He has to his credit several positions after completing two consecutive two-year terms as the President of the Western Region of the Seafood Exporters Association of India. A former chairman of the Indian Merchants Chamber, he has worked as a member on the Regional Advisory Committee of the Export Credit Guarantee Corporation and is currently the Chairman Emeritus of Indo-Canadian Business Chamber and the National Vice President of the Indo-Israeli Chamber of Commerce & Culture. Kripalani has been a part of several seafood and business delegations, and was nominated to the PM's delegation to Thailand.

Besides these, he is also the convener of several other committees which are dedicated to social work through medical centres rendering aid to arthritis and cancer afflicted children. On the day of his installation, Kripalani signed an MoU between Rotary and Habitat for Humanity International, to help build 40,000 homes in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. Says Kripalani,"The focus of our Club is not socialising but service to the underprivileged. I am delighted Nobel Peace Laureate and former US President Jimmy Carter will be coming to Andhra in October next year to inaugurate a housing project for families in need. " Habitat has been working in India since 1983 and todate has built more than 10,280 homes.

Kripalani's company Pijikay provides customers with up-to-date information on the catch situation, raw material prices, the price fluctuations in the international markets and other details about the Seafood industry by way of a weekly bulletin. Pikijay has a compact EU approved factory (Libran Cold Storages Pvt Ltd) at Mumbai where company staff personally supervise production.

India exports mainly prawns, shrimps, squids and cuttlefish to Europe. It is the fourth largest exporter of shrimp to the US, after Thailand, China and Indonesia. In 1995-96, India emerged as the world's second largest producer of inland fish and the seventh largest producer of all fish, including marine catch. Exports of marine products rose a whopping 800 per cent since 1984-85 from Rs 3.84 billion to Rs 35 billion in 1995-96.
