Nationwide Survey on Database Fisheries Cooperatives:

Fishery in India is an important part of our economy. There are over 18 thousand functional primary fisheries cooperative societies having a membership of around 3 lakh fishers in the country, who are socially, economically and educationally backward. They need skill up-gradation to enable themselves to use at least medium technology in the field of fisheries and also need education for their managers/members of fishermen cooperatives to run their societies smoothly in a viable way. Therefore, there is an immense scope and need to help them by giving them identification in the mainstream of social strata. In many states there is no exact census of fishers. It has been observed that there are many unidentified and unorganized fishers in the country who are deprived of the benefits of various schemes sanctioned by the Government of India as well as the State Governments. Our objective is to organize them.
 

The Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries, government of India had assigned a task to collect the data of primary fisheries cooperatives alongwith the details of their status, membership and facilities available with these cooperatives. FISHCOPFED took the challenge and completed nationwide survey of primary fisheries cooperatives. The computerized data report has also been prepared. FISHCOPFED has also prepared database for all functional fishery cooperatives. Details are as under:
