In view of the increasing demand for trained personnel to meet the requirements of mariculture and brackishwater culture activities in the country, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute took steps to institute a post-graduate education programme In mariculture at the institute, leading to the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees awarded by the Cochin University of Science and Technology. Through this programme a number of post-graduates have been turned out in the subject during the past seven years. The students were given both theoretical and practical instructions in different aspects of mariculture including basic subjects like physiology, nutrition, genetics and pathology. The Scientists of the Institute constitute the faculty for the programme and a number of members of the faculty have also been trained abroad in different specialisations. The Programme also had the advantage of consultants from other countries who have contributed greatly to its improvement and also in the development of Infrastructural facilities at the Institute. As a result of the consultancy, a number of manuals on special subjects have also been published. The Krishi Vigyan Kendra and the Trainers' Training Centre handle a number of courses at the farmers level and at the trainers level based on the technologies developed at the Institute. In addition, an integrated programme of training including subjects in agriculture, animal husbandry and home management is also conducted.
