As goes a saying United we stand divided we fall, one crore is a huge number but our fisherman community was suffering and there was no hope for them. Exploitation channels were making all the money and the hard working community was not getting the dividends and they were getting pushed to the corner.

COFFED that is Co-operative Fisheries Federation was formed in 2006 with the sole purpose of uniting the community, help them with everything from problem related to fisheries, to disputes over water bodies to education for their child and providing them insurance. We at COFFED look at each and every aspect of the life of a fisherman community and work towards improving their way of life

Federation believes in the philosophy of ?Help yourself by helping others?. Its all about the feeling of togetherness and unity at COFFED. We are here to give the fisherman community a sense of belongingness, a purpose to come under one umbrella and take the fisherman community and the fisheries in Bihar to new heights.

Sky is not the limit for us, we look way beyond that
