    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.

    No results found.

    This working paper is the report of a three-member mission from the Directorate General of Fisheries, Indonesia, which visited Andhra Pradesh for six weeks early in 1981 at the request of the Government. The FAO/SIDA Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) acted as supporting agency for the mission in accordance with the Buenos Aires Action Plan of the United Nations to foster Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (TCDC). Several people in the state assisted the mission during thestudy. M r. S. Banerjee, Director of Fisheries, and other fishery officers in Hyderabad and at district levels in Krishna, West Godavari, East Godavari, Srikakulam and Nellore provided information and made necessary arrangements for field visits and interviews; logistic support from district collectors and sub-collectors greatly facilitated the work of the mission. Dr. M. Karim of the BOBP assisted the mission during the study and the report preparation. The costs of travel and of servicing the mi ssion were met by BOBP, also the costs of publication of the report.

    Experimental Shrimp Farming In Ponds In Polekurru, Andhra Pradesh, India - BOBP/WP/46 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes the establishment of a small farm complex of six ponds of different design for experimental brackishwater culture of shrimps and fish. It is located in Polekurru, near Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh, India. An account is given of two years of culture trials of penaeid shrimps. The purpose was to identify suitable pond configurations and appropriate water management practices. In response to a request for assistance in coastal aquaculture from Andhra Pradesh, BOBP arranged for a three-member Indonesian mission to help identify suitable activities. Based on their recommendations, a pilot project, including the design of the pond complex, was prepared by Mr. Narasimha Rao, Technical Coordinator of the Directorate of Fisheries in Hyderabad and Dr. M. Karim, Aquaculturist of the BOBP. The latter also supervised the implementation of the project, and the authors wish to acknowledge his inspiring work. At the end of the culture trials (September 1985) described in thi s paper, an assessment of the socio-economic feasibility of pond culture in the Polekurru area was undertaken. The findings of this assessment will be reported separately. The Polekurru project, and this paper which describes it, are activities of the small-scale 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 Nations), and covers five cou ntries bordering the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The main goal of the project is to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk in member countries.
