The government is keen to develop the Fisheries University into a premier organisation on the one hand and also realise the ambitious LNG based power plant at Puthuvype,according to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

Supplementing the position taken by Excise-Fisheries Minister K Babu on a calling attention motion of former minister K Sharma in the Assembly on Friday on divesting of land which belonged to the Fisheries University, the Chief Minister said that the Cochin Port Trust had agreed to hand over 20 acres of land in lieu of the land surrendered by the varsity for the LNG power project.

K Babu said that Fisheries University,which has a 50 acre holding,is running 32 courses.

Surrendering 20 acres is likely to hamper the conduct of 12 courses.
