The Madras Research Centre of Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) was originally established as MoUuscan Research Unit in 1952. In fact, the history of this Centre dates back from 1947 when the Headquarters of CMFRI was first established in the Zoological Research Laboratories of the Madras University. In 1949 the Headquarters was shifted to Mandapam Camp, leaving behind a Fishery Survey Unit at Madras which was upgraded as a Research Unit in 1952. This Research Unit was further upgraded to a Substation in 1965 with the expansion of research activities and at present it is known as the Madras Research Centre of Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. It is an active centre of research in marine fisheries of the Madras and adjacent areas which are well known for a variety of living resources of considerable economic importance.
