There are several fish quarantine stations/facilities located in India including the ones near the Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata airports. The Chennai quarantine facility is the one shown in the photo. These facilities have been established based on the recommendations of national committees as a mean to control potential problems associated with the imports of exotic species. In order to ensure an effective quarantine system, guidelines have been introduced along with a monitoring system whereas the co-ordination of quarantine facilities are carried out by centers located at different regions or points of import.
