The Extension, Information, and Statistics (EIS) Division is driven by the dream serving as effective link for technology aided welfare improvement of all the stakeholders in the harvest and post-harvest aspects of fishery value chain. Since its inception, the Division has served as an agency for technology assessment and refinement of the institute.
The Division undertakes research; and facilitates capacity development through training, industrial visits, and technology demonstrations to stakeholders across the fish value chain, including fishermen and women, development officials, professionals and workers in seafood sector, students, academicians etc.
EIS Division assists the institute in identifying emerging issues in fishery value chain while continuing to deliver on its mission to provide research-based policy solutions. The targeted domains in the value chain include fisherfolk, input manufacturers and service providers, small fishers and processors, industry, exporters and consumers in both domestic and urban markets.
EIS Division has carried out research and extension activities in the domains of sustainable and responsible fishing; fishery ecosystem and food systems; life and livelihood of small scale and artisanal fishers; fish marketing, and trade; supply chain efficiency including loss assessment and reduction; input and service delivery systems; institutional changes in fisheries including legal and regulatory regimes; labour issues in fish value chains; gender in aquaculture and fisheries; economics of fishing systems; entrepreneurship development in fisheries; need and impact assessment of technologies and consumer behaviour. It is involved in entrepreneurship development and village development programmes.
The Division supports the Institute to conduct national and international organisations. EIS division also serves as the functional bridge between the programmes of the Central and State Governments and the institute. The Extension Division, via its numerous programs, schemes, and activities, assists farmers in obtaining information about scientific research and new knowledge in fishing and subsequent activities.
The Division reaches technology end-users through a multi-pronged strategy of responding to technical questions, providing designs and publications, setting up exhibitions and film screenings, publishing and issuing technical pamphlets, leaflets, folders, booklets, and books as well as the Institute's regular publications like the Annual Report, Research Highlights, and quarterly Fish Technology Newsletter, performing technical consultancies, running training programmes, observing National Days, setting up press releases, radio interviews, and so on.
The Division responds to the new age problems by solutions of digitisation and information technology. The division provides statistical solutions to research and development activities, and information technology for communication and technology assessment and refinement.
