The West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Sciences was established on January 2, 1995 by a Legislative Act (West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Science Act-VI,1995). Before this, veterinary education in the state was imparted by Bengal Veterinary College, a premier institution of the country which was established in 1893. It was the second oldest veterinary college in the country and the college was expanded, enriched and functioned under the University of Calcutta until 1974. In 1974, the college was merged with Bidhan Chandra Krishi Vishwavidyalaya in Mohanpur, district Nadia, as the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences.
