FCDP received a prestigious award from the Malayalam Daily, ‘Deepika’ for its activities in favor of the fisher-folk and for the leadership of Fr. Jose Koyickal, its Director. In 1997, due to some problems, the owners of 23 fishing boats with all their crew members broke away from the Fishermen Welfare Society (FWS) and insisted that they want to be under FCDP. Therefore, FCDP started a separate centre for them at Pallithottam on 01 April 1997, to be known as Don Bosco Fish Marketing Centre, which will now function under FCDP.
