Integrated Fisheries Project The Integrated Fisheries Project, formerly known as Indo-Norwegian Project, came into being in 1952 as a result of the tripartite agreement signed between the Governments of Norway and India and the United Nations Organisation. The Project started as an area development programme in the Sakthikulangara-Necndakara region with certain specific objectives. It has established organised facilities for hygienic handling, processing and marketing of fish. In 1963, the Project shifted its headquarters from Sakthikulangara- Neendakara to Cochin. The administration of the Project was taken over by the Government of India. The activities of the Project thereafter expanded. Integrated Fishery Complexes were started not only at Cochin, but also at Cannanore and in the nearby States of Tamilnadu and Karnataka. Boatbuilding and berthing facilities were also established. In 1972, the agreement with the Govt, of Norway was terminated and the Indo-Norwegian Project at Cochin was renamed as Integrated Fisheries Project and the administration was completely taken over by the Government of India. AH the three sub-stations of the Project were handed over to the respective State Fisheries Departments.
