    In-Service Training Programme for Marine Fisheries Extension Officers of Orissa, India - BOBP/REP/31 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report describes an in-service training programme for marine fishery extension officers of Orissa, India, carried out between March 1982 and July 1983. The programme dealt with major areas of fisheries extension work - social, economic, technical - and covered three “modules” - credit for fisherfolk, community development, small-scale fishing gear and methods. For each module, the training programme consisted of a preliminary survey to collect information; a training course to assess option s for action; field assignments to plan a pilot project; field workshops; and a final seminar. The pilot project was then implemented. The in-service programme improved the knowledge and the capabilities of extension officers. A major gain was that it led to two independent development projects - credit for fisherfolk and non-formal education for fisherfolk children. These projects are being reported separately in BOBP/REP/32 and BOBP/REP/33 respectively. The in-service training prog ramme was conducted by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) in cooperation with the Directorate of Fisheries, Orissa. The 15 extension officers participated energetically in the programme at every stage. Various government agencies of Orissa – in fisheries, finance and education - offered excellent cooperation.

    Traditional Marine Fishing Craft And Gear Of Orissa - BOBP/WP/24 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In August and September 1980, a survey was carried out in the Balasore, Cuttack, Pun and Ganjam districts of Orissa, to obtain information on the type of traditional fishing craft and gear, their methods of operation, cost, and possibilities for improvement and introduction of new prototypes and innovations. All the important villages engaged in marine fisheries were visited. This working paper presents the results of the survey. A brief summary of the types of fishing craft and gear is fol lowed by detailed data on materials and construction of craft and gear. The document may serve as a guide for specific extension work among small-scale fishermen and also provide a basis for experiments to improve fishing craft and gear. The survey and this paper are an activity of the Project for Small-Scale Fisheries Developmentof the Bay of Bengal Programme. The project is funded by the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA) and executed by the Food and Agriculture Organizati on of the United Nations (FAQ). The main goal of the project is to develop, demonstrate and promote technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk in five countries that border the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia Sri Lanka and Thailand.

    Marine Small-Scale Fisheries of Orissa, India: A General Description- BOBP/INF/07 1984
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This document attempts a brief and factual presentation of data and baseline information on the main features of the small-scale marine fisheries of Orissa, India. It could serve as an introduction to the subject, leading to deeper studies of particular aspects; as a source of general information; or more particularly, as a background document for use in discussions on the planning and programming of development assistance. The paper has been prepared by Mr. U. Tietze, Extension Training Off icer of the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme, in cooperation with the Directorate of Fisheries, Orissa. It revises and updates a document issued in June 1977 by the FAO/UNDP project RAS/74/031, “Development of small-scale fisheries in South-West Asia.” The BOBP’s small-scale fisheries project began in 1979 from Madras. It is executed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) and funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority). It covers five countries bordering the Bay of Bengal - Bangladesh; India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Its main aims are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and the supply of fish from the small-scale sector in the five countries.
