Fish Processing Technology

Fisheries Microbiology Laboratory

Our specialized microbiology laboratory is dedicated to the intricate study of microorganisms within aquatic ecosystems. Equipped with advanced tools, this facility enables students to explore the role of microbiology in fisheries and aquatic health.

Food Analysis Laboratory

This laboratory is specifically designed to conduct food testing, featuring state-of-the- art packaging machinery and proximate analysis instruments capable of determining moisture, protein, lipid, and ash content in food products. Its primary objective is to impart practical knowledge to students for educational purposes. Additionally, the laboratory serves as a testing facility for products developed by entrepreneurs, particularly fisherwomen participating in marine culinary workshops.

Marine Culinary Workshop (FSSAI Certified)

The objective of this workshop is to foster entrepreneurial skills among fisherwomen who have participated in our training program. Our marine culinary workshop has obtained certification from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). Under the brand name "Mukkadal Muthu," we have introduced products including fish pickle, dry fish, and masala dry fish. The primary goal of this initiative is to empower fisherwomen to become successful entrepreneurs and to facilitate the launch of their products into diverse national and international markets.

Gille marine Product & Skill Development Centre (Off - campus facility)

Our primary objective is to equip fisherwomen residing in the coastal villages of Kanniyakumari District with essential skills. This initiative aims to employ solar drying techniques to uphold the freshness and quality of harvested fish, consequently reducing post- harvest losses. Implementation involves the installation of solar dryers and comprehensive training sessions for fisherwomen to ensure the production of sanitary dried fish. By enhancing the marketability of the fish catch through solar drying, we seek to elevate the earning potential of fisherfolk by enabling them to command higher prices for their products.

Our college's comprehensive array of facilities is tailored to provide students with a well-rounded and enriching educational journey. From cutting-edge laboratories to recreational spaces, each facility contributes to creating a vibrant learning environment that nurtures both academic excellence and personal development.
