Abstract or Summary
  • This is a vogue to do fish farming in a pond or other water body inside and outside of the household in rural scenario of Bangladesh as an agriculture-aquaculture farming for a long time. Even the fish farming with profit or income generation among the fish farmers has taken place just a few years ago with the initiative of many development projects. The Government of Bangladesh had launched 'Patuakhali Barguna Aquaculture Extension project (PBAEP) in south and south east coastal area of Bangladesh which is supported by DANIDA (Danish International Development Agency) through its Technical Assistances in cooperation with the Department of Fisheries (DoF) of the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock (MoFL), Bangladesh and implemented by 2 local NGOs. This project aims during 1997-2004 to strengthen the socio economic status and physical well-being of the men and women and improve their participation in social and economic development as well. The project emphasis on community based fisheries management (CBFM) in coastal area through Integrated Pond Farming (IPF) activities. Training for IPF is the sole intensive system to the farmers group so that they can do raising fish and use the dyke of the pond and be beneficial from earning money with the increase of production. The paper was to obtain qualitative information of farmer's attitude, perception and opinions, including both their positive and negative experiences to identify opportunities and constraints to raising fish from the women farmers in particular. It is found through a field study at the project area that the women play an important role in Integrated Pond Farming activities; nevertheless, women ability to exercise a choice in terms of agency is much lower. The project stresses and development of primary capabilities for the first for women with aquaculture techniques and micro credit training respectively, the project built up these women community significantly. The research findings concludes with the recommendation to provide credit, for sex separate groups and the extensive gender training for extension worker while women are less confident to speak up in the presence of their male partner in the training and meeting conducted by the project, fish farming is quite expensive for the rural women group and the extension worker also still confused about gender knowledge and gender gap.
