It is for all of us to take Nandeesha’s thoughts and deeds forward which will be the right tribute to the man extraordinary. I have known him for over 35 years and worked closely with him on many occasions. The AFSIB is planning to institute a suitable commemorative gesture to sustain his spirit and commitment to fisheries development and gender sensitization. Mohan Joseph Modayil
It would be an honor to be associated with any commemorative gesture to sustain spirit and commitment of prof. M. C. Nandeesha in the fields of aquaculture & fisheries development and gender sensitization.
