Swaminath, M and Rajendran, R (1991) Man-power needs for marine fisheries by 2000 AD. CMFRI Bulletin National Symposium on Research and Development in Marine Fisheries Sessions V, VI, VII 1987, 44 (3). pp. 480-488.



Formal training of operatives for marine fishing industry started in late forties when the erstwhile Deep Sea Fishing Station commenced training activities. However, organised training for fisheries personnel commenced with the establishment of CIFNET (erstwhile CIFO) and CIFE in the early sixties. The former catered to the manpower needs for operating the fishing vessels while the latter produced the managerial/administrative personnel for shore support. Today a number of fishery colleges and Agricultural colleges supplement the training activities of these two training establishments in fisheries-related disciplines. Accent on innovations of harvest and post harvest technologies of marine capture fisheries has necessitated upgradation and modernisation of training processes of CIFNET. This has been done following a series of studies and evaluations commensurate with the type and kind of technologies, breed and nature of craft and gear Introduced etc. In addition to meeting the domestic needs, the trained manpower is the national wealth which is spared (or development of industry in friendly developing countries to our advantage due to the inflow of foreign exchange. Reckoning the present pace of growth of our marine fishing Industry a projection of the manpower needs for 2000 AD Is attempted In the present paper. The nature and specialities of the human resources that would be needed that time have t)een attempted to be Identified and the innovation to be made in the production process are outlined.
