Abstract or Summary
  • In India, while West Bengal has been the largest consumer of fish due to typical fish eating population. Due to many constraints regarding production of fish it has not been the largest one. But it has been the largest producer of fish seed and seedlings as compared to other Sates of the country. Most of the seeds for sweet water fish are produced in tanks and ponds artificially. After production of the seeds, it is packed in polythene bags packed and put in tins. The seedlings are transported to distant places in aluminum vessel. Transportation of fingerlings to distant places are generally done by itinerant traders. The job of transportation of fingerling has been labour consuming as water in aluminum vessels has to be continuously shaken in order to maintain the level of dissolved oxygen. Water has to be changed periodically to maintain the dissolved oxygen level. In view of the above the study intends to analyze the following objectives: i) To study the different types of market functionaries engaged in seed marketing; ii) Nature of marketing and marketing margins obtained by each of them. The study had been conducted among 250 farmers having various size of tanks/ponds in the districts of 24-Parganas (South) and Bankura district of West Bengal.
