CMFRI, Kochi (1988) Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Karwar Research Centre Activities and achievements. CMFRI; Kochi.
Uttar Kannada District of Karnataka State covering a coastline of 160 km in length, extending from Majali in the north to Sirur in the South is known for rich resources of pelagic fishes viz oil sardine, mackerel, crustaceans and other shellfishes. With the aim of development and conservation of these resources, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute established a Research Station at Karwar in 1948. This Station then known as 'Mackerel Research Unit of the Institute, was housed in a rented building. In the year 1958 the present building was acquired and the Unit was raised to the status of a "Sub-station" in 1965. Since the mid seventies, it has been known as the Karwar Research Centre of C.M.F.R. Institute. With increased activities of research, the demand for more space has been felt and to meet this, a wet laboratory has been recently established on a leased land.
