Progress of marine fisheries research

Jones, S (1958) Progress of marine fisheries research. In: Fisheries of the west coast of India, 1 October 1958, Calicut.



Fisheries research is a comparatively recent development in the scientific research activities of the Nation. The need to take up research as a responsibility of the Centre so that the fishing industry could be fostered and developed along modern lines was realised as recently as during the Second World War when the whole country suffered very acute shortage of food. Fisheries had all along been a transferred subject and except for the enactment of the "Indian Fisheries Act" in 1897 very little direct interest was displayed by the' Government of India for the next half a century for the development of fisheries.
