Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute

The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute came into its illustrious existence as a wing of the Ministry of Agriculture in the same year in which Indians broke free from the shackles of tyranny and persecution and snatched away their motherland from the seemingly unfathomable grip of the British.

Later in the year 1967, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute was ceremoniously included in the highly dignified family of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, abbreviated as ICAR. Following this magnanimous event, two years later, the headquarters of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute was also relocated to Cochin.
