    Promotion of Small-scale Shrimp and Prawn Hatcheries in India and Bangladesh - BOBP/REP/66 1994
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The shrimp and prawn culture industries in India and Bangladesh still depend on wild fry. However, expanding production and the trend towards intensification, especially in India, will require the development of hatchery industries in these countries. Since the private sector is likely to be the engine for this development, BOBP undertook activities to transfer smallscale hatchery technology as directly as possible to this sector. In India, this took the form of training small-scale entrepr eneurs in tiger shrimp hatchery technology and providing financial support to the Government of West Bengal for the construction of a demonstration hatchery. Of eight trainees in India, one has set up a shrimp hatchery. The shrimp/prawn hatchery in West Bengal was completed, but not put into production. In Bangladesh, a small-scale demonstration freshwater prawn hatchery was set up in Chittagong District. A new hatchery technology, using brine and a simple recirculating biofilter, was found to be feasible. Both government and private sector participants were trained in the hatchery. Direct assistance in the form of training and equipment was given to four private groups. Three of them completed prawn hatchery construction by the end of 1993 and one of them went into production.

    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.

    Promotion Of Bottom Set Longlining In Sri Lanka - BOBP/WP/40 1985
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This document is the third report of bottom set longlining trials conducted by BOBP in cooperation with the Ministry of Fisheries, Sri Lanka. The two earlier reports covered trials off the south west coast of Sri Lanka between October 1979 and March 1980 (BOBP/WP/6) and on the east and west coasts of Sri Lanka during August 1980 - July 1981 (BOBP/WP/16). This report summarizes the results of the trials conducted between 1981 and 1983 and also discusses biological information obtained from the tr ials during the period 1979 - 82. The report concludes that bottom longlining might be a viable alternative fishery for both the 28-footers and the 18’ GRP boats during the lean season for driftnet fisheries. This conclusion is based on trials conducted in Negombo, 1981 /82 and Puduwakattuwa, Dehiwala, Panadura and Ratmalana, 1982/83. This report, and the trials on which it is based, are activities of the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). It began in 1979 and covers five countries bordering the Bay of Bengal — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. 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 appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and the supply of fish from the small-scale sector in the member countries.
