Marine fisheries research in India

Panikkar, N K (1956) Marine fisheries research in India. Progress of Fisheries Development in India . pp. 20-28.



Sea fisheries of India have been exploited for centuries. They came within administrative control of the Government during the beginning of this century. Early efforts to investigate them were made by the Departments of Fisheries established in Madras and in Bengal about fifty years ago. A real impetus to fisheries and marine research was provided by the publication of the Reports on the Pearl Oyster Fishery of Ceylon (1903-'06), the starting of the Marine Experimental Station at Ennore (1908), the opening of the Madras Aquarium (1909) and the Field Collecting Station at Krusadai (1928) by the Madras Government.
