The proposal for establishing various Central Fisheries Research Institutes, under the Union Government, was first made in 1943. Subsequently on the basis of the "Memorandum on the proposed Fishery Research Institute" submitted by Lt. Col.R.B.Seymour Sewell in 1946, the Central Marine Fishery Research Institute (C.M.F.R.I.) was established on 3rd. February 1947 by the Government of India under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture with headquarters at Madras(now Chennai) ,which was shifted to Mandapam Camp in 1949 and to Cochin in 1971. In 1967,the administrative control of the CMFRI was shifted to the Indian Council of Agricultural Research(ICAR). Building For its effective functioning the CMFRI carries out its research activities through eight Divisions operating from the headquarters at Cochin(Kerala), one Regional Centre at Mandapam Camp(Tamil Nadu), eleven Research Centres and 28 Field Centres located along the Indian coastline. The regional problems and national priorities in marine fisheries and seafarming are attended to by these divisions and the centres. Over the period of nearly half a century since its inception, the CMFRI grew significantly in its size and stature and built up a fairly adequate research infrastructure and recruited qualified R&D staff. The Institute's multidisciplinary approach to research in marine capture and culture fisheries has won it the recognition as premier Institute comparable to any well established laboratory concerned with fisheries research in the world.
