From Chairman's Desk

The State Fisheries Development Corporation has recently stepped into its 65th year since foundation, having overcome many challenges and garnering many accolades along in its distinguished journey. But the journey continues unabated in energy, spirit and will for accomplishing the unforeseen endeavours. With the inspiration of Smt. Mamata Banerjee, Hon'ble Chief Minister, West Bengal, we have strived to manifest into reality the vision of fish from farm to fork at an affordable price for West Bengal.

The Corporation is proud to play a pro-active role in the fisheries sector as a priority sector of the Govt. for engaging in higher growth and development. The Corporation operates through an integrated infrastructure of fish farms, hatcheries and processing centres. Innovative species and endangered species of fish are being cultured to reach markets for state wide supply. New fish vending vans have been introduced to provide frozen and fresh fish items at doorstep and recently we have ventured into online delivery through apps as well, while maintaining health and hygiene.Guest Houses located in unbelievably serene and tourist friendly locations have been developed for creating awareness of fisheries as a critical source of livelihood of the rural poor. The Corporation also has exciting restaurants to match the water side view with sumptuous dishes of fish to be relished by a true food lover.

With the encouragement and recent spate of successes, we are hopeful of achieving our goal of introducing further new innovative species of fish, thereby widening our range of fishes. We hope to engage on a higher level the food and restaurant service, eco-tourism destinations, home delivery of raw, frozen, dry fish and appetizing fish food items for delivering the best to our customers.
