Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute

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.
