Abstract or Summary
  • The long-range objective of an aquaculture extension system is to help the rural fish farmers to reduce their desperate state of poverty through augmenting fish production. The study was conducted to understand the present situation of fisheries extension and to make a policy recommendations for the development of fisheries extension in Bangladesh. From the discussion it was found that extension of technical knowledge among fish farmers and attempts to disseminate information on fish culture was very weak in the study area. The farmers usually obtained help and cooperation regarding farming technology from their fellow group members. Looking into the vastness of available water resources, the huge number of fish producers and fisherfolk, the existing extension set-up and technology transfer mechanism are considered to be extremely weak. Such realization has led to develop aquaculture extension approach which will be treated as participatory extension system. The paper proposed extension system will be helpful for mass motivation and technology transfer to pond fish farming operators at different stages such as, hatchery, nursery and pond fish farmers. It is not essential for the Upazila Fisheries Officer (UFO) to make individual contact with the pond fish farmers, which is virtually not possible for them to do so, they can use the fish seed vendors as an extension agent for their purposes such as, motivation, technology transfer, knowledge dissemination etc. and in the process of farming operations, the different stage trained farm operators also could work as an extension agent on behalf of the UFO. It is expected that, this process of extension approach might be efficient, timesaving, cost effective and beneficial to the fish farm operators. It will enhance the pond fish production as well as other fish farming operations in rural areas of Bangladesh.
