Abstract

I am extremely proud and greatly cherish the memory of being a product of CMFRI, having started my professional career as a Senior Research Scholar of the Govt. of India (1958-61) for research in marine fisheries at Mandapam Camp and culminating as the Director of the Institute (1985- 94). My desire to pursue for the Ph.D. degree twice earlier at the Indian Lac Research Institute, Ranchi (1956) and at the University of Delhi (1958) could not be fulfilled as the facilities and the environs there did not convince me. Moving to Mandapam Camp from Delhi was termed a 'banishment' by my supervisor, late Dr. Mary Chandy, Reader at the Delhi University but it proved to be a boon as I instantaneously felt it the ideal place for research on fish, my long cherished goal.
