Recognizing the need for trained human resources, the Government of India, established the Central Agricultural University (CAU) with its headquarters at Imphal, Manipur through the Central Agricultural University Act, 1992, No. 40 dated 26th December 1992. The act passed through the parliament has provision for the establishment of Agricultural Education Institutes in the northeastern states of India, covering the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Sikkim and Tripura. Fishes have been a reliable source of nutritionally sound and cheap food item for the people of NE. To cater and enhance the level of fish production in the NE region, the university established the College of Fisheries as one of its constituent college at Tripura through the Ordinance No. 2 of 1996, promulgated by the ministry of Agriculture, Department of Agricultural Research and Education (DARE), Government of India.
