CMFRI, Kochi (1988) Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Tuticorin Research Centre Activities and achievements. CMFRI; Kochi, Kochi.
From time immemorial Tuticorin has been an important fishing centre in India. Apart from the production of quality marine fish it is famous for the valuable pearl and chank fisheries. From its inception, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has realised the need to give proper impetus for the development of the marine fisheries of this area and has set up a Survey Centre in 1948 which was upgraded as a Research Unit in 1959. With further strengthening of the research activities this was elevated to the status of a sub-station in 1969 and subsequently to that of a Research Centre. This Research Centre is conducting researches on diverse aspects of marine fisheries of this region, with a view to evolve suitable management measures for rational exploitation as well as to increase production through aquaculture by developing appropriate technologies.
