Home Director's Message

Warm greetings to all.

During the past few months the institute has consistently taken up programmes that enhance sustainability of marine capture fisheries as well as promote mariculture practices that will enhance livelihood options of the fishermen. Successful captive breeding of the highly valued food fish Pomadasys furcatus as well as the marine ornamental, Lyretail anthias for the first time globally is a major credit to the sustained efforts towards the goal of a divesified mariculture species basket aimed by the institute. Indian pompano culture is also being promoted as there is good scope for open sea cage farms for this species. The institute continues to support the marginalized fishermen communities through appropriate interventions through centrally sponsored schemes. Such endeavours will pave the way for all round development of the marine fisheries sector in the country.

With best wishes.
