About Company

The plan to start an academic programme in fisheries science under the Assam Agricultural University was conceptualized following a discussion on the subject in the ICAR Region II Committee Meeting held in 1982. The University prepared a plan and proposal to develop the College of Fisheries and submitted the same for consideration to the ICAR and the Government of Assam. The ICAR constituted a committee to accredit the proposal, which advised to start a 4 years B.F.Sc. degree programme vide Memo No.4-3/82- Edn. Dtd.16-10- 1985; suggesting an allocation of Rs. 240 lakh in the VIIth plan period. The committee also suggested 70:30 proportion of assistance from the ICAR and State Government for development of the College. The Government of Assam advised the University to start the College at the present location at Raha and accordingly the University initiated development of (1) the academic unit; (2) the boys’ hostel; (3) two staff quarters and renovated 3 existing houses to accommodate office, library, etc. All of these buildings are of semi-permanent nature.
