New seafood processing unit to come up at Tuticorin Fisheries College

The Fisheries College and Research Institute will establish a production-cum-demonstration unit for `seafood processing and value-addition' on its premises here at a cost of Rs.45.5 lakhs allocated by the Indian Council for Agricultural Research, New Delhi, before the end of the current fiscal.

Of the project cost, Rs.5.5 lakh will be utilised for construction of the building and Rs.30 lakh for the establishment of cold storage, a water purification plant, a power washer, an effluent treatment plant, an air blast freezer and food processors. The rest will be earmarked for purchase of glassware, chemicals and packaging material.
