    Fishing Trails With Beachlanding Craft At Uppada, Andhra Pradesh, India - BOBP/WP/56 1987
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper discusses the conduct and findings of fishing trials carried out with the BOBP beachcraft IND 20-C at Uppada, Andhra Pradesh, India between August 1985 and July 1986. The beachcraft was equipped with fishing gear designed to catch large pelagic species. The idea was to investigate the craft’s fishing potential in offshore areas — since earlier fishing trials had been confined to inshore waters. The trials were conducted at the request of the Directorate of Fisheries and in cooperati on with them. Five private fishermen constituted the crew. An inspector of fisheries was the main local counterpart. On behalf of BOBP, a fishing technologist (associate professional officer) provided the expertise, while a senior fishing technologist and a naval architect consultant provided supervision and advice as necessary. The trials showed that the BOBP beachcraft are capable of fishing in offshore waters upto 35 n miles. Catch performance and profitability can be improved with better o rganization and refinements to the craft’s propuLion unit. The fishing trials, and this paper which reports on them, were sponsored by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) during its first phase (1979 - 86). During this phase the project was funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). Its objective was to develop, demonstrate and promote methodologies and tech nologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk in five member countries - Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

    Pen Culture Of Shrimp In The Backwaters Of Killai, Tamil Nadu - BOBP/WP/32
    A Study Of Techno-Economic And Social Feasibility
    1985
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report describes the findings and recommendation of a technoeconomic and social feasibility study of shrimp pen culture in the backwaters of Killai, Tamil Nadu. It is based on field surveys in the communities of the region in the latter half of 1983 and on three culture trials at Killai undertaken during an earlier 21-month technical programme conducted by BOBP and the Department of Fisheries, Government of Tamil Nadu. The 21-month progranime showed promise of technical viability on pen culture of shrimp. This study was therefore undertaken to focus on problems relating to social and economic feasibility, and thus help plan future state policy on introducing shrimp pen culture to fisherfolk. The study and the paper resulting from it are activities of the smallscale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The project is funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nat ions), and covers five countries bordering the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The main goals of the project are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and to boost supplies of fish from the small sector in member countries. The author of the paper would like to thank Dr. lan R. Smith (Deputy Director-General, ICLARM, Manila), Mr. I. Rajendran and Mr. V.C. Bose (D irectorate of Fisheries, Government of Tamil Nadu), and Dr. M. Karim (BOBP) for their cooperation in the planning and execution of this study.

    Demonstration Of Simple Hatchery Technology For Prawns In Sri Lanka - BOBP/WP/43 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report describes the facilities and documents the procedures for the operation of a “backyard” hatchery for Penaeid prawns, put up for demonstration and training purposes in Pitipana, Sri Lanka. It concludes that the technology demonstrated is appropriate and that the aims set have been reached; it also identifies the constraints that should be lifted if this hatchery is to become a permanent training facility of the Coastal Aquaculture Research Station at Pitipana. The hatchery was one o f the components of a project aimed at developing a small-scale prawn culture region. The project undertakes trials of prawn culture in pens in the lagoons of Koggala, Negombo and Puttalam. Under the terms of this project, the Ministry of Fisheries, Sri Lanka, renovated and adapted facilities already existing for shrimp breeding, while BOBP contributed expertise, provided some imported equipment and met running costs. This report was compiled by BOB P’s D Reyntjens (Aquaculturist Assoc iate Professional Officer) and is based on the reports of the consultant, Dr K. H. Mohammed, the records maintained at the hatchery, and also on personal observations made in the last quarter of 1985. Mr Samaranayake, Assistant Director of Inland Fisheries and project leader, other team members and Mr. Reyntjens’s colleagues, Mr J. A Janssen and Mr P. Funegaard, also contributed to the project. This paper, and the project it describes, form part of the activities of the small-scale fisheri es project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). The project seeks to develop, demonstrate and promote technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk. The project covers five countries in the region — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
