Jones, S (1967) Two decades of Marine Fisheries Research. In: Souvenir 20th Anniversary Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, 3 February 1967, Mandapam.
the establishment of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute early in 1947 took place just before the dawn of independence, a most critical period in the history of our country which brought in its wake the partition, the stress and strains of which affected in one way or the other the entire Nation. However, the Institute continued to grow inevitably at a slow pace, mainly for want of adequate suitable technical personnel. Such difSculties in the early stages of any organisation are only natural even under normal conditions and could all the more be so in regard to an Institute of this kind as no set up for fisheries research or education existed then in the country from which experienced personnel could be drawn. The scientists required to shoulder the responsibilities were recruited mainly from Universities, Colleges and provincial or state fisheries departments and it necessarily took some time for many of them to get themselves acquainted and oriented to handle the problems that had to be tackled.
