  Fishery Survey of India was established in  the year  1946 as Deep Sea  Fishing Station with the objective  of  augmenting  food supply through development of deep sea fishing. It graduated to the status of a survey institute in the year 1974 under the name Exploratory Fisheries Project, with bases known as Offshore Fishing Stations in all the maritime states. The objectives of exploratory fishing and charting of fishing grounds, training of  fishing    operatives and testing commercial possibilities of deepsea fishing were assigned to it. With the changing developmental needs of the marine fishery sector and the growing data requirements in the context of the EEZ declaration, the institute has undergone major structural and functional transformations. In 1983 it was reorganized and upgraded as national institute, the Fishery Survey of India. It is recognised as a Science & Technology Institute in the year 1988. Consequent to the reorganisation the institute has amplified, enlarged and upgraded the scope and contents of its functions and activities. The FSI has thus emerged as the nodal fishery institute in the country with the primary responsibility of survey and assessment of fishery resources in the Indian EEZ and adjoining areas for their optimum utilization and sustainable development.
