At a time when fishery resources in the country show a sign of depletion, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) here is getting ready to promote the fisheries resource management.

The CMFRI will utilise global expertise to popularize recent techniques in the area for better scientific work among the youngsters, a release said here.

Aimed at boosting the research base towards development of an eco-friendly fishery management practices, CMFRI will conduct 21-day national training programme on 'Monitoring Structure and Functions of Pelagic Ecosystem Relevant for Fisheries', associating with the Jawaharlal Nehru Science Fellowship (JNSF) of the Institute, it said.

Under JNSF, funded by the Central government,CMFRI has collaborated with world renowned scientists who are fellows of the Royal Society (FRS) or similar academies for sharing their knowledge with local scientists and creating new research areas in fisheries science.

The training programme, sponsored by National Innovations in Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA), will provide the oceanographic and bio-geochemical background required for the ecosystem based approach for fisheries management, it said.

The programme will focus on developing ways for a better management practice considering even the minute functions of all biotic and abiotic organisms in the ocean.
