Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute- Oceanographic station List

CMFRI, Mandapam (1962) Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute- Oceanographic station List. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 9A (1). pp. 213-431.



Ever since the inception of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, oceanographical observations have been carried out from various centres along the coasts of India. But these investigations have been restricted to the near shore waters and oceanographic investigations sensu stricto were started only in the later part of the year 1957. A beginning was made with M. O. Kristensen a trawler which was converted into a research vessel and placed at the disposal of the Institute by the Indo-Norwegian Project. The first cruise was on 16-9-1957 in the south-west coast of India. In the same year the vessel was replaced by one of the sister vessels R. V. Kalava. This vessel worked till the end of April 1961 and from December 1961 the Indo- Norwegian Project made available a new Research Vessel Varuna, designed and constructed for carrying out oceanographic investigations-cww-exploratory fishing in tropical waters. With this, it has been possible not only to intensify the programme but also to cover a greater area.
