Brackishwater aquaculture has been identified as one of the high potential areas for increasing fish and shellfish production and for deriving maximum economic and social benefits such as better utilisation of unproductive and marginally productive coastal lands, swamps and brackishwater bodies, augmenting production for export and foreign exchange earnings, support to food security system, establishment of ancillary industries, generation of employment and improving the socio-economic conditions of rural poor. As all these activities require adequate and continuous R & D support, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research sanctioned the establishment of the Central Institute of Brackishwater Aquaculture during the 7th Plan period with effect from 1.4.1985, by reorganisation of the existing Fisheries Research Institutes of the Council. The Institute started functioning independently since April 1987. The Headquarters of the Institute is located in Chennai City with field and farm facilities at Muttukadu, about 30 km south of Chennai. The Institute has three Research Centres, located at Kakdwip (West Bengal), Puri (Orissa) and Narakkal (Kerala)
