Manpower training is one of the essential prerequisites for the development of any industry. An industry which is based on a specialised technology needs the competent technical personnel for its very start. It is also imperative that the manpower requirements for the growth of the industry are met in a phased manner through organised training. Pearl Culture is a nascent industry in India. The technical base for it was laid recently by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. The Institute developed pearl-culture technology indigenously at its laboratory at Veppalodai near Tuticorin in 1973 which marked the breakthrough, placing India among the few countries in the world which has the technical know-how of pearl culture. The success was remarkable in that it was achieved within six months of starting the project, against the background of four decades of unsuccessful attempts elsewhere in India. As the pioneer in the field, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has taken up further researches on every component problem of this new discipline in India.
