About us

The College of Fisheries established in 1985, at G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, India is one of the premier institution, especially in the Inland Fisheries Sector, catering to professionally trained manpower, development of fish production technologies, transferring the technologies to fish culturists, entrepreneurs and the industry.

The College has played a great role in the establishment of fish farming in the inland sector of the country. A large number of modern fish farms have been established. Integrated fish farming has also been taken up. A number of the fish seed hatcheries have also been constructed in the private sector. Extensive farm facilities in the College provide a cradle for conducting research work on fish farming and for demonstration of frontline technologies to fish culturists.

The College is now emphasizing on the development and management of the high altitude fisheries in the vast freshwater resource, which exist in the form of rivers, lakes, and reservoirs in the Central Himalayan region. Special emphasis is being put on the development of technology for the culture and hatchery seed production of endangered fish species. Innovative aquaculture techniques have been developed for increasing fish production from the reservoirs.


Facilities available to corporates visiting Pantnagar

The College of Fisheries has sufficient farm facilities for production as well as research work. It can provide facilities to the corporates for testing of feeds, growth promoters, inducing agents, immune enhancers, aquaculture equipments such as aerators etc. on payment basis. Since the College has a modern circular hatchery, fish culturists, entrepreneurs and fishery co-operatives can also obtain the quality fish seeds produced on a large scale.

The College also has infrastructure for launching joint ventures in fish feed production at commercial scale.

Since, the post harvest technology in freshwater fishery is non-existent at present there is great scope for the development of post-harvest sector in collaboration with the corporates. Joint venture in ornamental fish breeding can also be successfully run at the College.
