ICAR-CIFRI conducted a Workshop on “Application of Biosensor Technology in Inland Fisheries”.

A one day workshop on “Application of Biosensor Technology in Inland Fisheries” is held on 1 st August 2018 at ICAR-CIFRI, Barrackpore. The workshop was conducted aiming to sensitise the professionals, working on Inland Fisheries Management, on the potentials of biosensing technolgy in aquatic health monitoring. In view of the wide application of this technology in other sectors like food safety and medical diagonistics, the workshop has focused on application of this technique to detect pollutanats like heavy metals, pesticides, PAHs, PCBs etc. in the inland aquatic environment. Not only small molecules, detection of various pathogenic microbes is also possible through this technique along with advantages of low cost, fast detection, high specificity, low limt of detection, etc. Eminent personalities like Prof. Vipul Bansal, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia; Dr. Nabarun Bhattacharyya, Director, C-DAC, Kolkata; Dr. D. Pradhan, Professor, IIT-Kharagpur; Prof. Priyabrat Sarkar, Calcutta Institute of Technology; Prof. Rajib Bandopadhay, Jadavpur University, Kolkata; Dr. P. Swain, Principal Scientist, ICAR-CIFA; Dr. K. Krishnani, Principal Scientist, ICAR- CIFE; Prof. A. K. Dasgupta, Calcutta University; Dr. Anindya Sen, Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata have deliver lectures in the workshop. The event has given an opportunity to interact with eminent scientists working in the field of Biosensor Technology, nationally and internationally. The workshop was jointly organised by ICAR-CIFRI and Inalnd Fisheries Society of India (IFSI). Dr. B. K. Das, Director, ICAR-CIFRI is the convenor and Dr. B. K. Behera is the Organising Secretary of the workshop. 120 participants including scientist, research scholar and student attended the workshop.
