Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute - A Pioneer in Fisheries Research

Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute

Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute is located at the south-west corner of the Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU) campus in Mymensingh, which is about 120 km north of the capital city, Dhaka.

The fisheries sector plays a significant role in nutrition, employment generation and foreign exchange earnings. The need for a strong institutional research support to achieve the desired national goal of sustainable increased production and development of fisheries was first highlighted in the National Seminar on Fisheries Research, organized by Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC) in September 1982, in close collaboration with the Life Science Departments of Agricultural and General Universities and the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR), FAO, and other agencies operating in fisheries research and development activities.

One of the four recommendations adopted in the workshop was to establish a national institute for fisheries research. The recommendation for establishing a national fisheries research institute was also strongly supported by the Expert Team constituted by the Ministry of Agriculture and by the World Bank Appraisal Mission for its Agricultural Research Project (Phase IV, IDA Phase II). In implementation of this recommendation, Fisheries Research Institute (FRI) was established in 1984 under an ordinance (Ordinance No. XLV of 1984) promulgated by the President of the Peoples' Republic of Bangladesh, which was subsequently renamed as Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute by an Act (Act 10 of 1996).

Though the Institute was established in 1984, it actually started functioning in 1986 with the recruitment of required manpower and creation of initial research facilities. Since then, the institute has been playing a key role in assisting the nation to achieve the goal of fisheries development as set out in successive development plans.

BFRI is an autonomous research organization and linked up administratively with the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock (MoFL), Government of the Peoples' Republic of Bangladesh. The overall research, training and management activities of the Institute are carried out in close cooperation and linkages with various national and international organizations/agencies. The Institute also keeps close contact with public extension organizations, different NGOs working in the country, for dissemination of technologies and obtaining feed-back from them.

The station has 7 laboratories, Fish feed and nutrition, Water quality, Fish disease, Pearl culture, General histology & histopathology and an analytical laboratory.

The station has well established and sophisticated carp and prawn hatcheries. It has as many as 118 drainable ponds consisting of 20 mini ponds, 52 nursery ponds (0.1 ha each), 47 rearing ponds (0.25 ha each) and 16 grow-out/brood stock ponds (1.6-2.6 ha each). Other physical facilities include a feed store, office buildings, residential quarters, a 30 bed dormitory, a community center and a 5-bed guesthouse. The various research activities of the station are implemented by the divisions: Reproductive Physiology & Genetics, Aquaculture & Farming System, Nutrition, Food & Feed Technology, Pollution, Disease Diagnosis & Control, Soil, Water & Productivity Management, and Fisheries Economics & Socio-economics.

This institute is playing a vital role in the economic and social development of the country through the development of fisheries. শিক্ষা সংক্রান্ত খবরাখবর নিয়মিত পেতে রেজিস্ট্রেশন করুন অথবা Log In করুন।
