Reviews of College of Fisheries
|College of Fisheries, Panangad,Kochi
College of Fisheries established in the year 1979, was the third Professional College in Fisheries in the country. It started first with admitting students to the Bachelor degree (Professional) program in Fisheries on a national basis. The selection of students was through an entrance examination conducted by the State Government at the State level and by ICAR at the national level. Later Post graduate programs with specializations in Aquaculture, Fishery Biology, Fish Processing, Fishery Hydrography and Fisheries Extension were also started.
It is now a well established college with all facilities to train students in all specializations in Fisheries. Passed out students are already in high positions in Government/ semi-Government/Private organizations and also hold key positions in Academic as well as National Institutes. Many have gone outside the country for higher studies or for job.
The college has established its name in the national level as number one in this field. Research activities also prosper here.
