The Discipline, in the recent past, had carried out a link with two British Universities, Aberystwyth and Bangor on the ecological monitoring of the Sundarbans and since then it has been placed in better position in the competing for and attracting foreign research grants and funding. The linked project with funding under UGC on the SUPPORT FOR FISHERIES EDUCATION AND RESEARCH has led the Discipline significantly to build up its educational and research facilities. International funds like GIZ, IFS, Darwin Initiative and Asia Link are awarded to conduct various research.
