Regional Research Centre, Rahara
Brief History and Genesis of Rahara Centre
Considering the potentialities of increasing fish production and productivity of this region. Scientific investigation on the use of sewage in aquaculture was initiated in two rented ponds at Rahara in 1975 for collecting necessary basic information. The activities were soon expanded and a 10.5 ha marshy land was developed into “Wastewater-fish farm” in the early eighties under the banner of the erstwhile CIFRI, Barrackpore, and named as Wastewater Aquaculture Division of CIFA in 1987 when CIFA, Bhubaneswar became an independent Institute and since then diversified research on low-cost aquaculture technology in wastewater ecosystem have been developed and are being upgraded for eliminating cost intensive inputs like feed, manure and fertilizer etc.
Of late it was renamed as Regional Research Centre (RRC), Rahara and its Field Station, Kalyani of ICAR-CIFA, which has been functioning with the mandate to conduct research to cater the region specific needs to conduct research on the utilization of waste-water in aquaculture, to undertake studies on diversification of aquaculture practices and to disseminate aquaculture technologies through demonstration, capacity building of officials from various organizations and imparting need based training to fish farmers of West Bengal, NEH and other eastern states. At present the centre is known as Regional Research Station, Rahara of ICAR-CIFA.
Regional Research Station is situated at Rahara, Kolkata, North 24-parganas Dist., West Bengal, Kolkata - 700 118. The Centre is well connected with Road, Rail and Air. The Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport at Dumdum is only 14 km away. Sealdah and Khardah Railway stations are 18 and 2 km away from the Research Station, respectively. Frequent auto rickshaw services are available through-out the day from Khardah railway station.

Field Station, Kalyani
The Station had its beginning as Frog Culture Division of the erstwhile ICAR-CIFRI, Barrackpore in 1975. Later, the Frog Culture Unit was renamed as Regional Research Centre of Wastewater Aquaculture Division, Rahara in the year 1998. Later on it was further renamed as Field Station, Kalyani which is situated at Nadia District, West Bengal with campus having 7.0 ha land area. The station is equipped with 15 ponds of different sizes having 1.2 ha water spread area for rearing and production of fish, having one pabda hatchery, experimental shed one poultry house, one duck shed, etc.
