Fishery Resource and Environment Management Division

This division mandated to monitor the man-made changes in the riverine, reservoir, estuarine and wetland ecosystems and to evolve suitable amelioration measures. The studies under the Division include collection of basic information on habitat variables, assessment of its impact on biodiversity and fishery through known indicators, fish and prawn stress and disease diagnosis and control. Development of mitigating action plan for ecosystem restoration and also conducts research aimed at creating a database on the fish stocks and fishery resources. The division is geared up to develop various population models that can lead to scientific exploitation of inland fisheries resources. Mapping the various inland aquatic resources of the country by GIS is also the responsibility of the division.
