Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute

CMFRI, Kochi (1994) Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. CMFRI; Kochi.



The proposal for establishing different Central Fisheries Research Institutes under the Union Government was first made in 1943. The fish subcommittee of the Policy Committee on Agriculture and Fisheries in its report in 1945 endorsed this proposal. Finally on the basis of the "Memorandum on the proposed Fishery Research Institute" by Lt. Col. Dr. R.B. Seymour Sewell in 1946, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) was established in 1947 by the Government of India under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture with Headquarters at Madras which was shifted to Mandapam Camp in 1949 and to Cochin in 1971. In 1967 the Administrative control of the Institute was transferred to the Indian Council of Agricultural Research.
