Central Institute of Fisheries Education

Standing tall on a dynamic history of more than five decades, Central Institute of Fisheries Education (Deemed University) can justifiably be called the national leader in fisheries education in India. The institute has been committed to the development of qualified and trained manpower to plan, execute and manage various fisheries developmental programmes in the country.

The Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE) was established by the Government of India, with the assistance of FAO/UNDP on 6th June 1961. The main purpose of its establishment was to impart post-graduate education and training largely to the inservice fisheries personnel of the country to support fisheries developmental activities. The CIFE started functioning at the Institute of Science Building in Bombay (Mumbai, now) and initially the academic activities were organized in three divisions viz. Fishery Biology, Fishery Technology and Fishery Economics for conducting a two-year postgraduate course of Diploma in Fisheries Science (D.F.Sc.). The administrative control of institute was taken over by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research on 1st April 1979. With this, the charter of CIFE was enlarged to cover research and extension activities besides its academic programmes. From a set-up of three divisions initially, the Institute added four more divisions during the VI Five Year plan period.
ICAR-CIFE offers two years Masters (Masters in Fisheries Science) and three years Doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in as many as eleven specialised disciplines of fisheries science
