SOCIOECONOMIC FACTORS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF POND FISHERIES

Fishery resource development in pond represent two separate issues. One related to bringing ponds into use and the other relate to raising the existing traditional fish farming practices to a semi-intensive level. We have analysed the pond ownership and pond use types as the two most important factors affecting the fishery use of pond. The latter part of the essay explain the role of different factors in raising the intensity of fish farming. The discussion evidently suggests that family income, level of education, type of ownership are important socioeconomic factors affecting utilization of ponds for fish farming. Other important factors are size of pond and stocking rate. Cultural factors and marketing facilities also affect fish farming in ponds.
