Home Director's Message

Warm greetings to all.

Enhancing livelihood options and income for fishermen community backed by research and technology development, remains a top priority for the institute. Hence, even amidst the COVID 19 pandemic, programmes for economic empowerment of fishermen communities were successfully conducted in several maritime states following safety protocols. Technologies such as Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) have yielded good results and needs to be further promoted. The mariculture basket of India has diversified with food fishes such as Indian pompano and sea bass becoming popular choices, besides the cobia. With the development of fish seed supply chains through fish brood banks and facilitating marketing channels for harvested fish across the country in recent time, there is growing interest in marine fish farming. Sustainable fisheries and mariculture are key to attaining the goals of a blue revolution in the country and all stakeholders need to be equal partners in achieving this goal. 


With best wishes.
