Abstract

During the year 1956-57 the Central Marine Fisheries Research Station made further progress in its work on marine fisheries research at the Headquarters Station at Mandapam and at the subordinate establishments at different centres of the country. In addition to continuing the programmes of work of the normal establishment and of the First Five-Year Plan schemes, the initiation of expanded activities during the year under the Second Five-Year Plan programme gave an added fillip to the activities at all the existing centres and to the new programmes at new centres. The Research Units at Bombay and Cochin were upgraded as Substations and two new Research Units were opened at Calcutta and Mangalore. Additional Survey/Research Centres were also set up at Surat, AUeppey, Neendakara (near Quilon) and at Pondicherry. Arrangements have been made for opening a new Research Centre at Porto Novo and for setting up a Research Unit on the Saurashtra coast during 1957-58. Besides continuing work on the scheme for the collection and analysis of oceanographic data, a scheme of research on ' Pearl essence' has also been sanctioned by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. Volume III, No. 2 and Volume IV, No. 1 of the Indian Journal of Fisheries were published during the year.
