Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Cochin

CMFRI, Kochi (1981) Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Cochin. CMFRI; Kochi.



In the early forties especially during the 2nd World War and the post-war years, general food scarcity and the lack of adequate supplies of protein rich sea food prompted the Govt, of India to take a direct interest in the research, development and conservation of the fishery resources of the country. As a result of post-war reconstruction and development programmes taken up then, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute was started in 1947 with temporary Headquarters at Madras and in 1949 the Institute was shifted to its permanent H.Q at Mandapam Camp.
