Department of Fish Processing Technology

Introduction

The Department of Fish Processing Technology came in to existence from the erstwhile Department of Fishery Technology, a founding member department of Fisheries College and Research Institute since its existence from 1977. The plan scheme was sanctioned during the year 1988 vide Proc.No.R2/BM/74 IV 35/88 dated 13.11.1988 of the Registrar, TNAU, Coimbatore. The department is shifted from shore laboratory campus to FCRI main campus to a newly constructed building with an area of 4615square feet during the year 2015. This department has been offering fish processing technology courses for B.F.Sc., M.F.Sc., and Ph.D., degree programmes. The M.F.Sc degree programme in Fish Processing Technology was started in the year 1983 and produced 55 M.F.Sc dissertations addressing various problems of seafood industry and on the latest areas of research in fish processing until 2015. At present four students are carrying out their research working Ph.D. in the Department.

Objectives

  • To offer courses relating to Fish Processing Technology for B.F.Sc., M.F.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes
  • To undertake research projects / schemes in fish processing technology for the benefit of stake holders such as seafood processing plants and other entrepreneurs
  • To organize training programmes in fisheries trade particularly in fish processing for the women self help groups, fisherfolk, entrepreneurs and others to generate employment opportunities

Teaching

The following course have been offered by this department for B.F.Sc., M.F.Sc., and Ph.D. degree programme

There are well equipped Biochemistry, Microbiology, Product development and fish processing laboratories attached to the department. Further, new facilities have been created under NADP project named, “Kayalagam” and EDII project on Establishment of Marine Products business incubation forum.

Achievements

  • 63 M.F.Sc and 4 Ph.D graduates have been produced who are now leaders in the field of fish processing technology as technocrats and scientists.
  • More than 200 peer reviewed research papers have been published in leading national and international journals.
  • More than 15 new products and three Technologies have been standardized and commercialized by transferring the technology to self-help group members and entrepreneurs.

Current Focus

Current focus of the department is towards developing new products suitable for commercialization, exploring nutraceuticals from marine sources, addressing the quality issues faced by the industry and to identify and technological intervention on localized ethnic fish products with potential benefits to suit to global markets.
